NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The Stephen F. Austin women’s tennis team bounced back from their weather-delayed match on Friday, downing Incarnate Word 6-1 on Saturday at the Schlief Tennis Complex.
“I am happy with the outcome of the match,” head coach Roberto Aspillaga said. “We gave our number one player some rest and everybody had to step up to the plate and play one position higher. The team responded well to the challenge and took care of business”
The Ladyjacks (7-6, 3-0 SLC) took a 2-1 doubles point to grab a 1-0 lead and followed with strong play in the individual matches with UIW (2-8, 0-2 SLC). The pairings of Malena Gordo and Julia Lorca and Denise Maxl and Macarena Sedano Acosta each took 8-3 victories.
In singles play, Valeria Terentyeva, Andrea Ternera, Gordo and Lorca, all picked up wins to seal the win.
SFA will be back in action on Saturday, Mar. 22, at Abilene Christian.
