Appalachian State women's tennis earned its second victory over a three day tournament; today's win against opponent Liberty University.
The Mountaineers (3-1) handed Liberty (0-1) a 6-1 defeat at Greenbrier resort on Sunday, leaving the tournament with back-to-back wins.
In doubles play, the Mountaineer pair of Ellie Linsell and McKenzie LaSure joined for a victory once again as they defeated the Lady Flames' Alexsandra Sheeran and Rebekah Jenkins (9-7) in the No. 1 position. App State doubles Jennifer Ansari and Clare Cox matched up against Jessie Boda and Brittany Yang at the No. 2 spot, while Gabriela Celi and Brianna Amerllino faced Cameron Richard and Valerie Thong in No. 3 doubles; both Mountaineer pairs earning 8-6 victories over Liberty.
Appalachian played well in singles action, as well, as LInsell served Sheeran a loss in No. 1 singles (6-4, 6-0) and Cox defeated Richard for the No. 2 spot (6-4, 6-4). Brittany Yang earned the lone point for Liberty when she defeated Ansari at the No. 3 position (6-3, 6-2).
