Women's Tennis Falls to Davidson, 4-2
ORLANDO, Fla. - The Coastal Carolina women's tennis team suffered a 4-2 loss to Davidson on Tuesday afternoon in a neutral-site match played in Florida.
The loss drops Coastal's season record to 7-5, while Davidson improves to 9-2.
Davidson opened the match with 6-2 win by its third doubles pairing of Samantha Armas and Alyssa Hahn over Coastal's Rylie Cox and Jessie Mount. Natalie Wall and Iryna Vardanian evened the point with a 6-4 win on the second court, but the Wildcats edged the Chants on the first court, 7-5, as Anna Feaster and Megan Scholvinck prevailed over Sara Bondar and Somer Dalla-Bona.
Davidson captured the first two singles points, with Armas taking the sixth court and Abele the third.
Trailing 3-0, Vardanian (No. 2) and Natalie Wall (No. 5) made it a 3-2 match with consecutive straight-sets wins.
The comeback fell short, however, as Feaster won out over Dalla-Bona on the first court.
The match on the fourth court went unfinished.
