CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Coastal Carolina University women's team bounced back with a victory to wrap up a three-match road swing, defeating host Charlotte, 6-1, April 11. With the victory, the Chanticleers move to 16-5 on the season, while the 49ers fell to 4-15.
For the second day in a row, Coastal did not pick up the doubles point, losing two of the three matches. The only victory for the Chants was at No. 2, as the duo of senior Paty Cortes and freshman Mary Hill upended Charlotte's Gabi Vergara and Anna Ekelund, 8-2.
The story was different in singles, as the Chants took all six matches in straight sets to get the win. Junior Lexi Bolesky handled Alexandra Zinn at No. 1, 6-4, 6-3, while sophomore Miki Bunea picked up a 6-4, 6-1 victory at No. 2 over Kimber Redfern. Senior Kim Webb earned a 6-2, 7-5 win over Vergara at No. 3, with Cortes handling Candace Cunningham at No. 4, 7-5, 6-0. Senior Maria Camberos posted a 6-4, 7-5 win at No. 5 over Iveta Guneva, while at No. 6, Hill quickly disposed of Ekelund, 6-0, 6-0, for the whitewash.
"It was a great response after a tough loss yesterday," Head Coach Jody Davis. "The girls really responded well and played some good tennis. Now we need to wrap up Big South Conference play strong to get ready for the post-season tournament coming up."
The Chanticleers return home for the home finale, Tuesday, April 13 against Presbyterian at 1 p.m.
