Tennis Falls to VWU, 6-3

Brittney Brown sets up for a back swing

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- The Meredith College tennis squad capped off the weekend with a 6-3 loss at Virginia Wesleyan University.

Today's no. 1 and 2 doubles teams pushed the Marlins to a pair of 8-6 finishes, but only Alexandra Cheney and Logan King recorded a win. The court three pair cruised to an 8-2 victory over VWU's Aubree Johnson and Taylor Witherspoon. King went on to take Taitum O'Brien 6-2, 6-2 at no. 6 singles.

Brittney Brown recovered from a 6-3 setback in her opening frame to force Lyric Hinton into a tiebreaker. Brown claimed a 10-3 win for the match. Aly Henneberry battled Audrey Bally in a 6-3, 6-4 loss at two, and Emily Wilkinson captured a pair of games in each of her sets on court three.

The Avenging Angels will enjoy a two-week break from competition through the college's spring recess, returning to the court March 18 at Hollins.
