ASU Womens Tennis Falls Short To Chattanooga
The Mountaineers forced a handful of three-set matches but fell short, as Appalachian State University women’s tennis fell to Chattanooga, 7-0, in Southern Conference action at UTC Tennis Courts on Sunday. The Mountaineers failed to pick up the victory in their final road conference test, while Chattanooga has earned its most wins as a program since 2003. Doubles action saw Chattanooga jump out to a quick lead, earning a 5-8 win at No. 2 doubles and a 4-8 win at No. 3. Appalachian juniors Ellie Linsell and Jennifer Ansari were unable to stave off the sweep, as the Mocs took the No. 1 match, 6-8, and a one-point advantage into singles play. In the final match on the courts, Appalachian’s Jessica Thaggard came two games away from winning her match with a 4-2 lead in the final set, but Chattanooga completed its final rally of the day with four-straight games for a 7-5, 3-6, 6-4 UTC win. The Mountaineers are back in action on Tuesday when they host Davidson at 3:30 p.m. The Apps play their final road match on Thursday with a trip to Wofford, also at 3:30 p.m.
