Lady Saints Blank Mountain Lions 9-0 on Senior Day

DAHLONEGA, GA – The North Georgia women's tennis team blanked Young Harris College 9-0 on Tuesday afternoon for the second time this season at the Yahoola Creek Tennis Complex.

The Lady Saints improve to 8-11 overall on the season, while the Mountain Lions fall to 0-14 on the year. The women's tennis program celebrated Senior Day before the match, honoring lone senior Stasa Vojosevic who played in the final home match of her collegiate career.

Vujosevic would not disappoint in her final home event, as she did not surrender a single game in doubles or singles. At No. 1 doubles, Vujosevic and Laura Chapman stifled Sara Rodgers and Victoria Herndon for an 8-0 victory, while at No. 1 singles Pretoria, South Africa, native was at it again, sending Rogers packing 6-0, 6-0.

Young Harris had only five players competing, giving North Georgia victories at No. 3 doubles and No. 6 singles by default, but the Lady Saints never let up at any point, taking all five singles matches and both doubles matches to cruise to a 9-0 victory.

North Georgia surrendered a combined four games in the first four singles matches of the day, while at No. 5 singles Matilda Watson was caught in a battle, taking down Kelly Boyd 5-7, 6-1, 10-1 to cap the perfect day for the Lady Saints. 

North Georgia returns to action on Thursday afternoon, traveling to Berry College to battle the Vikings in a non-conference showdown. First serve is set for 2:30 p.m. at Richards Tennis Complex.
