Women’s Tennis Captures Star Match
The Army West Point Women’s Tennis team extended its winning streak to seven on Saturday at the Lichtenberg Tennis Center, as the Black Knights took down rival Navy, 5-2, to earn a star in the Army-Navy Star Series, presented by USAA.
The dual began with a back-and-forth affair for the opening doubles point. Stephanie Dolehide and Caroline Vincent cruised to a 6-2 win at No. 1 to set the tempo. After dropping a tiebreaker at No. 2, Sasha Inchauste and Hannah Boubel rallied for a 7-6 (4) tiebreak win of their own at No. 3 to give Army the early 1-0 team lead.
The Black Knights carried that momentum into singles action, as the Cadets jumped out to three victories by straight sets. Ana Joyner earned Army's second team point with a 6-2, 6-3 win at No. 1. Paola Bou would follow suit, winning 6-3, 6-3 at No. 4.
The clincher would come at No. 2, with Dolehide storming to a 6-2, 6-4 victory to give Army the Star. After wins by Navy on courts five and six, Vincent would give the Black Knights their fifth point with a three-set win at No. 3.
Army will remain at home, as the Black Knights welcome Bucknell to the Malek Tennis Center on Friday, April 9 for a Patriot League dual at 1pm. Read more.
