SHERMAN, Texas – The Salisbury University women's tennis team picked up its second win of its spring break trip in Texas with a 9-0 sweep of Austin College on Tuesday afternoon.
The Sea Gulls (6-2), who won their sixth straight match, rolled through doubles play, surrendering a combined three games in the three wins, paced by senior Jillian Poppe and freshman Natalie Savage, who rolled to an 8-0 win against Lizzie Flint and Sophie McDonald at No. 1.
The Sea Gulls' control did not end with doubles, as Salisbury picked up all six singles matches in straight sets. Alban, at No. 3 (6-2, 6-0), Youlios at No. 4 (6-1, 6-1) and sophomore Allison Lutz at No. 6 (6-2, 6-0) all surrendered just two games in their wins.
Savage collected her seventh-straight singles win, and second of the year at No. 1, with a 6-1, 6-2 win against Flint while senior Victoria Handlin won 6-4, 6-0 at No. 5, her fifth straight singles victory.
Iosue's 6-4, 6-3 win was the closest match of the day as she improved to 2-0 at No. 2 in 2013.
Salisbury is back in action on Wednesday, March 20, traveling to LeTourneau University. That match is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m., eastern time.
