A Stonehill Sweep

A Stonehill Sweep

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Belmont women's tennis team earned their sixth win of the season with a 7-0 sweep of Stonehill College Thursday afternoon indoors at Centennial Sportsplex.

The Bruins took the early 1-0 lead as they swept all three doubles matches.  At one, sophomore Drew Hawkins and freshman Peyton Lee defeated Alexandra Vo and Annelise Howick 6-1.  Then at two, freshman Lauren Carelli and Erin Allen posted their eighth win of the season with a 6-3 victory over Bethany Hammond and Samantha Ormesher.  Finally at three, sophomore Maria Plaksina and Terra Sheldon remained undefeated this spring as they blanked Caroline Ray and Nicole Downey 6-0. 

In singles, Belmont continued their strong play by winning all six matches.  Hawkins won at one over Vo 6-1, 6-0.  At two, freshman Peyton Lee defeated Ormesher 6-1, 6-0.  Allen was victorious at three over Emma Markayan 6-1, 6-3. 

Plaksina outlasted Hammond at position four 6-2, 4-6, 11-9.  Sheldon won at five over Nicole Downet 6-1, 6-1, while Carelli beat Caroline Ray 6-1, 6-0.

Due to the threat of rain and storms, Saturday's road match at North Alabama has been postponed.  A new date and time for that match will be determined at a later date.

The women's tennis team (6-5) will be back in action next Thursday as they host Dayton at 10:00am at Centennial Sportsplex.
