Women's Tennis Falls at Randolph

Written by Chris Pendleton

The Southern Virginia University women's tennis team dropped Thursday's match at Randolph College 7-2 as the Knights' record moved to 3-3, while the Wildcats remained undefeated (3-0) on the season.

"That was a very good team we lost to today," said fifth-year Head Coach Deidra Dryden. "I was proud of the way we competed. We'll learn and grow from today's loss."

Ivy Kuroki (Hershey, Neb.) and Mina Romito (Walker, La.) were the only Knights to record victories at Randolph after the Wildcats swept Southern Virginia in doubles play, before winning four out of six singles matches.

Kuroki and Romito both won their singles matches in straight sets, with Kuroki taking the No. 1 match 6-2, 6-4 and Romito prevailing 6-2, 6-2 in the No. 6 spot. 

Women's tennis is off until Tuesday, Mar. 19, when the Knights travel to Roanoke College (4-2) for a match at 3 p.m.
