Coastal Defeats DePaul on Senior Day
CONWAY - The Coastal Carolina women's tennis team closed the 2018 regular season with a 5-2 win over DePaul on Saturday at the Stevens Tennis Complex. It was the final home match for Chanticleer seniors Sara Bondar, Brooke Campbell and Natalie Wall.
Coastal finishes the regular season 16-6 overall, and now waits for the seedings to be announced for the 2018 Sun Belt Women's Tennis Championship, set for April 19-22 in Peachtree City, Ga.
Saturday's victory also completed Coastal's undefeated streak at home this season, with the Chants winning 11 straight matches at the Stevens Tennis Complex.
DePaul was only able to field four players on Saturday, which meant Coastal started with a 2-0 lead going into the match.
That quickly turned to a 3-0 lead as Bondar and Somer Dalla-Bona won 6-3 at No. 1 to give Coastal the doubles point.
In singles, Dalla-Bona captured the opening point at No. 4 to give Coastal a 4-0 lead and the match. The Chants' final point came from Rylie Cox, who won 7-5, 6-4 at No. 1.
