Event: Tennis - Hollins at Roanoke (Salem, Va.)

The lead: Hollins made the short trip to Salem for the annual matchup of cross-town rivals. Roanoke College played host to a Hollins team looking to get back on track after a pair of tough outings against the Old Dominion Athletic Conference's (ODAC) best. The Maroons marked the third straight opponent in the top four in the conference standings.

The result: Roanoke 9-0

How it happened: As was the case in the past two ODAC matches, Hollins fell behind after being swept in doubles play. For the third consecutive outing, Hollins saw their opponent sweep singles play as well, falling to the Maroons, 9-0.

Hollins notes: 

  • After being shut-out in Lexington yesterday, Hollins was able to take a game at #3 doubles as well as play competitive singles matches at the top two spots.
  • Kateri Johnson saw her opponent at #1 singles, pull away midway through each of her two sets, falling 3 and 2.
  • At the #2 spot, Sarah Jordan Snoddy lost a tough first set before falling in set number two
  • The #3 doubles team of Juliette Baek and Elizabeth Eubank had Hollins best showing of the afternoon

What's next: Hollins will play a rare, late season, out of conference match on Wednesday when they travel to face Mary Baldwin in Staunton.
