The Dalton State women’s tennis team upped their record to 10-7 Saturday with a rain shortened match with Snead State from Boaz, Al.

The Lady Roadrunner held on to a 5-0 win by sweeping the doubles contests and the two singles matches that were concluded before the rains came to Lakeshore Park Tennis Center

Dalton State’s number one doubles team of Laura Winter and Daniela Sanchez bested the Lady Parson’s Samantha Dooley and Lucy Bradley 8 games to 3.

In number two doubles, Maria Alejandra Bejarano and Diana Narino (DS) blanked Rachel Farmer and Sidney Garner (SS), 8-0. 

Number three doubles saw Lady Roadrunners Chelsea Powell and Lindsay McCutchen defeat Amanda Bertoldi and Mary Evelyn Owen (SS), 8-1.

The only counting singles action had Powell (DS) over Bradley (SS), 6-0, 6-0, at number three and Narino (DS) over Garner (SS), 6-1, 6-1 at number four. 

Snead State is the seven time Alabama Community College champions. They will play in the National Junior College Athletic Association tournament at the Murphy Tennis Center in Tyler, Texas on May 3-9.  

Because this is the first year of sports at Dalton State, our teams are ineligible for post-season play. 

The Southern States Athletic Conference men’s and women’s tennis championships will be held Friday and Saturday (April 25-26) at Lagoon Park in Montgomery, Al.
