CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- The Lady Mocs downed Western Carolina in Southern Conference women’s tennis action 5-2 at the UTC Tennis Complex Saturday afternoon.

Freshman Emily Hangstefer won her second straight match with a 6-0, 6-3 win over Ainhoa Iglesias at No. 3.

Western Carolina’s Emily Turke won the first set 6-3, but Wishing, a freshman from Murfreesboro, Tenn., won the next two sets 6-3, 6-1 to claim the victory.

 

Doubles play started outdoors with Singh and Bossy claiming an 8-0 win at the No. 3 position over Best and Jennifer Brazelton. The next two matches were relocated to the UTC indoor courts as the weather began to turn.

 

Green and van der Veek would grab an 8-3 victory at the top spot over Glinska and Arnold for their second straight win. Chattanooga would complete the sweep with a win at the No. 2 position. Hangstefer and Kate Ksiezopolski defeated Massey and Iglesias 8-5.
