The Lady Vols tennis team handed Michigan its worst defeat of the season as
they gave the Wolverines a 9-0 loss at the Goodfriend Tennis Center in
Knoxville on Sunday.
The victory improves the Lady Vols to 4-2 overall (1-2 SEC) while Michigan
falls to 1-2 on the season.
"It was a terrific win and it was really a great test to see how we would
respond after such a good win yesterday (5-4 over No. 9 Wake Forest)," said
Tennessee co-head coach Mike Patrick. "We came back and played tough in
every match, which gave us a lot of confidence."
In singles competition, only one of the six matches failed to go all three
sets. Junior Candy Reid registered her third straight singles victory of
the dual season with a 6-0, 6-2 win over Maya Canfield at No. 6
At the No. 2 position, freshman Alison Ojeda recorded her fifth win of the
season as she defeated Brooke Hart, 7-5, 4-6, 6-1.
Freshman Meiling Parks had a fine outing as she notched her first singles
win of the season, 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 at No. 5 singles over Jen Boylan.
The duo of Ojeda and Reid improved to 4-2 on the season with a 9-7 decision
over Szandra Fuzesi and Boylan at No. 2 doubles. Parks and senior Emily
Woodside notched their second win of the weekend with an 8-4 victory over
Jen Vaughn and Canfield at the No. 3 position.
Tennessee will next be in action on Feb. 27 as they travel to Chapel Hill,
N.C., to face Brigham Young at 11 a.m. The following day, the Lady Vols
will face North Carolina beginning at 1 p.m.
