Appalachian State women’s tennis snapped a three-match losing streak after handing Southern Conference foe Davidson a 5-2 decision on Friday afternoon at Covington Tennis Courts. Appalachian improves its overall campaign to 12-7 and 4-3 in league play, while Davidson falls to 8-9 on the season and 1-7 in SoCon action.
The Mountaineers’ No. 3 doubles team of Gabriela Celi and Jennifer Ansari provided App with an 8-3 win over Elise Held and Frizzi Bschorer, but Davidson’s No. 1 and No. 2 pairs would take the next two slots with a pair of 8-6 scores to earn the first team point of the afternoon.
The Apps amped up the momentum moving into singles action, taking five-of-six matches for the Mountaineer victory. Senior Ellie Linsell improved to 14-4 on the season with a 7-5, 6-1 victory at No. 1, and Clare Cox continued with a 6-3, 6-4 triumph at No. 2 singles, moving to 13-6 overall.
Stephanie Synn earned Davidson’s second point of the day, defeating Brianna Armellino, 6-4, 6-3, at No. 3 and knotting the match at two. Jennifer Ansari pulled the score back in Appalachian’s favor when she took No. 4 flight in three sets (6-4, 4-6, 10-5).
Jessica Thaggard sealed the Mountaineer victory with her 6-1, 6-0 win at No. 5, while Gabriela Celi wrapped up the afternoon with a 6-2, 6-2 victory at No. 6. App State continues its road stretch as the Mountaineers head to Cullowhee to square off against Western Carolina on Sunday, April 7 at noon.
