Event: Emory & Henry at Hollins (Roanoke, VA)

The lead: Saturday marked the final day of the 2018-19 tennis regular season. Hollins played host to Emory & Henry in their final Old Dominion Athletic (ODAC) match of the season. Prior to the match, the Hollins team took a moment to recognize their lone senior, Anna Holland.

The result: E&H 9-0

How it happened: The Wasps came to Hollins for a noon start and took control early, sweeping the doubles matches. Other than a nice battle at #1, it was an easy start for Emory & Henry. In singles play, the Wasps quickly took #3 and #4 to seal the win. After clinching the match, the coaches agreed to play the #1 and #6 spots as an eight game pro set. Kateri Johnson had a 6-5 lead at the top spot before an E&H rally closed out the match, 8-6 and gave the Wasps the ODAC win.

Hollins notes:

  • The #1 doubles team of Sarah Jordan Snoddy and Valerie Sargeant rallied from down 4-0 to pull to within 6-3 at the top tandem spot
  • Johnson would have taken the first set of a traditional match, however, Katie Meade rallied late to take the pro set at #1 singles
  • Holland teamed with Johnson at #2 doubles and competed at at the #4 spot in singles during her final collegiate match

What's next: Hollins will finish the season with a 3-9 ODAC mark, giving them a 10th place finish in the 13 team league.
