#2 Emory Women’s Tennis Makes it 10-Straight with 8-1 Win over #13 Mary Washington

The Emory University women’s tennis team ran its winning streak to 10 matches in a row on Friday, as the second-ranked Eagles defeated the 13th-ranked University of Mary Washington 8-1 at the Fab 5 Tournament.

Facing the tournament’s host school, the Eagles battled to wins in two of the three doubles matches, picking up wins from Tshema Nash and Sabra Rogers in the second doubles contest, and from Jordan Wylie and Amanda Wikman in third doubles.

However, Emory was dominant in the singles matches, winning all six for the eighth time in 16 matches this season.  All six Emory singles players earned straight-set victories, guiding the Eagles to the victory.

In the sixth-singles match, senior Sara Vrabec picked up a 6-2, 6-1 victory, to remain undefeated in dual matches this season.  Vrabec has gone 13-0 during the spring season, including a mark of 8-0 as the Eagles’ sixth-singles player.

Emory improved to 14-2 overall with the victory, while Mary Washington dropped to 6-6 with the loss.  The Eagles are a perfect 12-0 against Division III teams this season, including a 7-0 mark against nationally-ranked Division III opponents.

Emory will look to keep its winning streak alive on Saturday at 4:00 PM against sixth-ranked Washington and Lee University, in the team’s second of three matches at the Fab 5 Tournament.
