The UTC women's tennis team continued to dominate its non-conference schedule with a 7-0 shutout of Jacksonville State on Saturday. The Lady Mocs improve to 8-0 on the year, the program's best start since the 1991 season.

UTC has posted shutouts in six of the eight wins this season. The Lady Mocs are 46-2 in singles action, only allowing two points in eight matches. Chattanooga also has an impressive 18-3 mark in doubles play.

UTC jumped out to a 1-0 lead by taking the doubles points.

Freshmen Kayla Jones (Memphis, Tenn.) and Alison Storie (Johnson City, Tenn.) made quick work of Kelly Tomlin and Aleksandra Cmilijic with an 8-2 win at No. 3.

Senior Jenna Nurik (Roswell, Ga.) and sophomore Kaylene Chadwell (Franklin, Tenn.) followed that with an 8-4 win over Raisa Guasti and Raphaela Lima. They improved to 6-1 in doubles play on the year.

Junior Alexa Flynn (Memphis, Tenn.) and sophomore Claire Mulyadi (Semarang, Indonesia) fought off a late charge from Zoe Bizinos an Olivia Nguyen at No. 2. The UTC pair took the tiebreaker 7-4 to win 8-7.

Jones, Mulyadi and Nurik all improved to 8-0 in spring singles play with straight-set wins today. Jones leads the team with a 19-2 overall record while Nurik improves to 13-6 and Mulyadi to 13-4. Freshmen Katie Polk (Woodstock, Ga.) and Jovana Pecovski (Apitan, Serbia) won at No. 5 and No. 6. Chadwell also took the No. 2 match.
