Women’s tennis swept by ETSU

Saturday, April 06, 2013

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. - A trip to Johnson City, Tenn., left the Lipscomb women’s tennis team empty handed after falling 7-0 to A-Sun rival ETSU.

The team went winless in the singles and doubles.

Lipscomb coach Andrew Harris said that the team’s struggles largely fell back on poor play in the singles and doubles.

“I think you’ve got to give a lot of credit to ETSU,” Harris said. “They really came out strong in the doubles today and really put the pressure on from the beginning. We had a hard time getting our feet under us in the doubles.

“In the singles, obviously by the results, we struggled getting out the gate as well,” Harris said. 

Harris gave credit to the talent of ETSU’s team, hoping that the Lady Bisons (7-11) bounces back in Saturday’s away match against USC Upstate.

“I think we need to continue to work to get better, and we’ll look forward to doing that tomorrow against USC Upstate, so I think that will be a good start,” Harris said.
