MARS HILL, N.C. – The Anderson women’s tennis team bounced back from Saturday’s setback to notch a convincing 8-1 South Atlantic Conference win past Mars Hill Sunday afternoon at the Hart Tennis Courts.
Anderson improved to 5-2 overall and 3-1 in the conference, while Mars Hill fell to 0-4 overall and 0-1 in the league.
The Trojans swept the doubles’ points to gain an early 3-0 lead and claimed five-of-six singles’ matches to earn their fourth win in the last five outings.
The AU tandem of Karen Ching and Avery Owens notched their third consecutive win at No. 1 doubles, while Owens has now won five consecutive decisions on the singles’ side. Ching and Lauren Trumbull have posted three straight singles’ wins.
