STATESBORO, Ga. --- The Georgia Southern women's tennis team swept the doubles matches and won four of six singles meetings Saturday to notch a 5-2 Southern Conference victory over Chattanooga.

The Eagles, 10-10 and 3-6 in the SoCon, claimed all three doubles matches, including a narrow 8-7(4) win at the No. 2 spot, to earn the early 1-0 lead.

Chattanooga junior Beata Knizat and freshman Annie Green produced the Lady Mocs' two team points. Knizat registered a 6-4, 6-3 win over Molly Maddox at No. 4 singles, and Green, a Georgia native, defeated Jessica Fuller at the No. 5 position, 6-2, 6-4.

Singles winners for the Eagles included Kristi Kegerreis at No. 1, Melanie Rolle at No. 2, Ali Beavers at No. 3 and Kelli Helms at No. 6.

Also competing for Chattanooga (8-11, 2-7) were seniors Lindsey Ballard and Bonnie Adams at No. 1 and No. 3 singles respectively and freshmen Grace Robinette and Arianna Sanjines at No. 2 and No. 6. Sophomore Kate Ksiezopolski teamed with Green at No. 3 doubles.

The match marked the final regular-season competition for the Lady Mocs, and they will head to Charleston, S.C., this coming week for the SoCon Championships, Thursday through Sunday.
