Virginia Wesleyan falls to regionally ranked Christopher Newport

NEWPORT NEWS, VA- Virginia Wesleyan College's women's tennis team was defeated 9-0 by the regionally ranked Captains of Christopher Newport University Tuesday in non-conference competition.

Despite windy conditions, the Captains (12-6) seemed unfazed and maintained constant pressure against the Marlins (3-12).

"We left it all on the court!" said Hannah Rice(Glen Allen, Va./ J.R. Tucker), "They were just the better team today."

Rice lost her match 6-1, 6-0 at #4 singles to Mille Downs(New Kent, Va./New Kent).

The Marlins return to action this Friday where they face Old Dominion Athletic Conference rival, The Vixens of Sweet Briar College, in the new Everett Tennis Center. Match time begins at 3:30 p.m.
