Vixens Top Olivet for 6-3 Win

HILTON HEAD ISALND, S.C. --- Sweet Briar College continued the week at the PTR Spring TennisFest by topping Olivet College (Olivet, Mich.) on Thursday, March 14.

 

Vixen Tennis held a 2-1 lead at the conclusion of doubles matches.  The singles side started on a rocky note as SBC dropped matches on courts one and two, but the team rallied.  SBC swept the remaining singles matches and cruised to the 6-3 win.

 

SBC Tennis returns to the courts for a final spring break match on Friday, March 15.  The Vixens face Marietta College (Marrieta, Ohio) at 11:30 a.m. on the courts at Chaplin Park Tennis Center.

 

Last year the Vixens and Pioneers met during the TennisFest and SBC earned a 6-3 win.  The team will look again to close out the week with a win over Marietta.
