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.
