Women's Tennis - Sat, Apr. 8, 2017

ATLANTA, Ga. – First-place Savannah College of Art and Design-Atlanta (8-6, 6-0 AAC) swept all nine matches from fifth-place Point University (6-12; 3-4 AAC) in a 9-0 Appalachian Athletics Conference women's tennis match, Friday, April 7, in Atlanta, Ga.


The Skyhawks already have set a school record for most dual-match victories in a season with their sixth win and have one more match left on the regular-season schedule.


Senior team captain Taylor Navarro (SR/Boerne, TX), who was unable to play in the match at number three singles and number two doubles, commented, "We did our best, but credit SCAD-Atlanta for playing very well.  They are a good team.  I'm proud to be a Skyhawk."


Luz Padilla (JR/Tucuman, Argentina) and Katie Larck (FR/Champaign, IL) teamed up at number one doubles and lost 8-3 to SCAD's Sofia Guerra and Madison Umbaugh at number one doubles, and Eman Cohen (FR/Columbus, GA) and Ashley Lane (JR/LaGrange, GA) lost an 8-0 super set to Katrina de Guzman and Valentina Lemos at number two doubles.  With Navarro missing from the line-up, Point defaulted the number three doubles and number six singles matches, giving SCAD a 4-0 advantage before the other five singles matches had concluded.


Padilla also lost set one of her number one singles match to Guerra, 6-0, and led 2-0 in set two before defaulting due to injury.  Larck lost 6-0, 6-0, to de Guzman at number two singles, and Cohen lost, 6-2, 6-0, against Umbaugh.   SCAD-Atlanta also picked up 6-0, 6-0 wins at number four and five singles against Victoria White (SR/Kokomo, IN) and Lane.
