UTC Women's Tennis Team Plays Three Matches This Weekend

Thursday, February 13, 2020
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women’s tennis team has three matches on tap this weekend.  The Mocs put their undefeated 4-0 record on the line at UNC Asheville on Friday, before hosting a doubleheader against Marquette and Brenau on Sunday.

Chattanooga is 4-0 for the first time since starting the 2015 season with five consecutive wins.  Freshman Jessie Young leads the team with a 3-1 mark at No. 1 singles.  Junior Emma Van Hee is 3-0 at No. 4, while sophomore Lilly Holmes and freshman Callie Billman are 4-0 at No.
5 and No. 6, respectively. 
 
Young and junior Bogdana  Zaporozhets lead the doubles tandems with a 4-0 mark at No. 2.  Van Hee and sophomore Caroline Gibbens are 2-2 at No. 1 doubles.

UNC Asheville is 3-1 overall and playing its fifth home match to open the season when it hosts the Mocs on Friday, Feb. 14.  Match time is set for 1:00 p.m. (E.S.T.) at the Asheville Racquet Club. 

“UNCA has had a strong start to their season,” stated head coach Chad Camper. “They have been dominate in many spots so we will need to bring smart tennis to the table.”

This is just the second meeting on record between the Mocs and Bulldogs.  UTC won the previous match 7-0 in Chattanooga on Jan. 24, 2009.

Marquette is 2-4 overall and takes on No. 22 Tennessee on Friday before visiting UTC.  This is the first meeting between these two teams. 

Brenau competes in the NAIA and is 2-0 on the year.  The Mocs are 2-4 all-time against the Tigers, but have wins in the last two matches in the 2014 and 2017 seasons. 

“Marquette is an indoor team so the women are up to the challenge for an opportunity to improve,” added Camper.  “Brenau is a strong NAIA program with a great player at #1. Solid tennis will be key to being successful.”

First serve against Marquette is 10:00 a.m. at McCallie’s Strang-Voges Tennis Center, and the Brenau match starts at 6:00 p.m.  Links for live scoring are on the women’s tennis schedule page on GoMocs.com.
