Women's Tennis Shuts Out Ave Maria

(ORLANDO) – The Walsh women's tennis team bounced back from Sunday's loss with a 9-0 shutout of Ave Maria on Wednesday. The Cavaliers are now 6-12 on the year and 2-1 on spring break with one match left. The Gyrenes are winless at 0-8.

Sofya Logunova and Mercedes Fernandez made quick work of Marianna Vargas and Camila Branstner 8-1 at first doubles, while Daria Bondareva and Snezhana Kiseleva defeated Mary Hardin and Kaylee Kutchta 8-0 at seconds.

In singles action, Vargas was no match for the superior Logunova as Logunova went perfect on the day with a pair of 6-0 set wins. Bondareva and Victoria Ambrosio also won at third and fourth singles by scores of 6-0, 6-0.

Fernandez defeated Branstner 6-2, 6-2 at second singles, and Gabriela Laguna-Leon won 6-1, 6-0 at fifth singles over Nellie Murphy.

Walsh will close out its spring break trip against Mercyhurst on Friday.
