CULLOWHEE, N.C. --- Three freshmen recorded tennis singles victories Sunday to lead the Lady Mocs to a 5-2 Southern Conference win over Western Carolina. 

Grace Robinette, Annie Green and Arianna Sanjines each earned singles wins at their respective positions to help Chattanooga improve to 8-10 overall and 2-6 against SoCon competition.

The Lady Mocs swept all three doubles matches for the doubles point and the early 1-0 advantage.

 

Green’s 6-2, 6-0 win at No. 5 singles over Susanna Sjokvist proved to be the clinching victory for Head Coach Jeff Clark’s team.

 

Sanjines pushed the team score to 2-0 with a 6-1, 6-0 win over Emily Turke at the No. 6 spot, and junior Beata Knizat picked up a win at No. 4 by the same score over Mariona Trilla Janes.

 

Robinette produced a 2-6, 6-3, 1-0(5) victory over Trish Hanson at No. 2 singles.

 

The Catamounts, 3-13, 0-6, notched team points at the No. 1 and No. 3 positions.  Tessie Salame registered a 6-3, 6-4 win over senior Lindsey Ballard, and Amanda Massey defeated senior Bonnie Adams, 6-1, 7-5 at No. 3.
