ARKADELPHIA, Ark. – The No. 6 West Florida women’s tennis team (3-0, 2-0 GSC) blanked its third straight opponent in a 7-0 victory over Southwest Baptist at the indoor courts of the Heflin Tennis Center in Arkadelphia on Saturday.

In doubles action, UWF dropped just five games combined in the three matches. In the first spot, the No. 24 doubles team of Suzana Cavalcante (senior/Sao Paulo, Brazil) and Paulina Ojeda (sophomore/Santiago, Chile) defeated Johanna Olsson and Jolee Cook, 8-4. In the second spot No. 12 Renata Mattos (senior/Sao Paulo, Brazil) and Taylor Brewster (sophomore/Ontaro, Canada) dropped a single game in their 8-1 win over Jenna Hendrickson and Thish Moceo.

Gray kept her impressive mark of not dropping a game in singles play, defeating Guiot in the sixth spot. Due to a tight schedule, the No. 4 and No. 5 postion singles matches were not played, as the Argonauts had already clinched the match.
