Women's Tennis Tops Tampa in Rain-Shortened Match

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Rain was the common theme throughout the day for Lynn University but the fifth-ranked women's tennis team was able to finish a 5-0 victory over Tampa on Saturday afternoon.  The Fighting Knights improve to 7-1 overall and 2-1 in the Sunshine State Conference.

Martina Gledacheva and Kim Przeszlowski needed little time to dispatch of their opponents, Jenelle Morgan/Cameron Moskol, 8-0 at the No. 3 doubles position to claim the first point of the match.  Carolina Cuevas and Grace Mpassy topped Gianna PInasco/Emily Hewland 8-2 and Valentine Confalonieri and Rosalie Willig completed the doubles sweep with an 8-4 victory at the top doubles spot.

Cuevas and Mpassy continued their strong play into singles action where they each won 6-0 in their first sets.  Cuevas held a 2-1 advantage in the second set over Hewland, and Mpassy a 2-0 lead against Morgan, when both of the Spartans players retired to make it a 5-0 in favor of the Blue & White.

Mother Nature then intervened, forcing the conclusion of the match.

The Fighting Knights are back in action on Monday, March 2, at 2 p.m. when they travel to St. Augustine, Fla., to battle Flagler.  Keep up with the women's tennis program at LynnFightingKnights.com and receive in-match updates by following @Lynn_Knights on Twitter and Instagram.
