UTC's Van Hee Wins Match at Alabama

Saturday, February 3, 2018
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga freshman Emma Van Hee scored a three-set win at No. 6 singles in the Mocs dual match at Alabama today.  UTC (2-1) dropped the team score 6-1 to the Crimson Tide who improved to 8-0 overall. 

Van Hee dropped the opening set in a tiebreaker [6-7 (5)] to Alba Cortina-Pou.  Van Hee battled back to take the second frame 6-3.  With the team score decided, they played a super-tiebreaker for the third set, which Van Hee won 10-7.
  She improved to 2-0 in the spring with this impressive win on her 19th birthday.   

“It was a great match,” stated UTC head coach Chad Camper.  “We fought.  All of the doubles were close, Caroline Hall lost in a breaker in the second and Tamri went three sets.

“I am really proud of this team.  The new kids are developing and the older girls are really stepping up in the lineup.  I think we have good things to come.  We have a tough one tomorrow, but we just keep improving.  That is the goal.”

The Mocs travel to Austin Peay for a 2:00 p.m. (E.S.T.) match tomorrow in Clarksville, Tenn.  Be sure to check back to GoMocs.com for complete results.

Roy Exum: Lee In A Landslide

The first time I met Bill Lee, the guy who is triggering a huge turnout of Tennessee voters across the state, I instantly liked him, admired him, and must have told a dozen friends that day we have the most exciting guy going to the Governor’s Mansion we’ve ever had. The best reason is because Bill Lee is real. His opponent, Karl Dean, is a Democrat and a longtime politician. Go ... (click for more)
