CHARLESTON, S.C. – Davidson women’s tennis closed out the weekend with a 6-1 victory over the Dayton Flyers on Sunday. The Wildcats improve to 9-4 on the season and 2-1 in conference play. 

“Today was a tough day both physically and mentally after a fierce battle with UMass,” head coach Susanne Depka said. “Despite having difficult times throughout the match for some players, the team persevered and finished the trip with a well deserved win. We will take all the lessons learned from this week and work hard in practice in order to improve and prepare for the matches next weekend.” 

The ‘Cats won all three of the doubles matches with 6-4, 7-6 (4), and 6-1 scores. Five out of the six singles matches saw Davidson’s Josie Schaffer, Elizabeth Truluck, Kavya Patel, Franny Shea and Mira Gladstone on top, all with two-set victories. 

Daniela Porges and Linden Patterson also claimed two-set victories over their opponents in singles, as well as recording a 7-5 doubles win. 

The ‘Cats will host East Carolina and James Madison on Saturday and Sunday, March 26 and 27. Saturday’s match against ECU will begin at 11 am, while first serve on Sunday will be at 1 pm.
