Lady Rams Tennis Falls To Appalachian State Mountaineers, 7-0

Feb. 10, 2008

Final Stats

MYRTLE BEACH, SC - Appalachian State University swept Winston-Salem State University by the score of 7-0 in women's tennis action at the WSSU Tennis Complex on Sunday afternoon as the Rams fell to 0-6 on the season.  The win moves Appalachian State to 2-1 overall on the season.


The Mountaineers swept all three doubles matches on the day as they recorded an 8-4 victory at first doubles, an 8-2 victory at second doubles and an 8-1 victory at third doubles en route to securing the doubles point.


Despite the loss, WSSU head coach Charlie Schoderbek extolled the virtues of the Lady Rams' number one doubles team of Shannon Loughnan and Laken Joyce following the match, commenting:


"Laken and Shannon really played well at number one doubles as they faced a very good Coastal Carolina pairing [in Heather Prior and Amanda Cash].  It truly was a well-played match from a pair that just began playing together.  They are only going to get better as the season progresses.  I am proud of our young ladies' efforts today" Schoderbek said.


Unfortunately the Lady Rams fared no better in singles play as Appalachian State swept all six singles matches as WSSU scored only 14 total game victories over the course of six matches as the Mountaineers earned straight-set victories at first through sixth singles.


The loss drops the Rams to 0-6 on the season as Appalachian State improves to 2-1 overall with the win.


WSSU returns to action at 1:30 pm as they face the Panthers of High Point University.
