The ETSU women’s tennis team took on the University of Akron at the LaTuchie Center in Akron, Ohio, Feb. 28.
The Bucs had a commanding win over Akron, finishing with a 6-1 victory. Before the match, the Bucs had fallen short to Akron in previous years.
“We played well, they beat us a couple years ago in a close 4-3 match,” said ETSU women’s head coach Travis Sandlandt. “For us to come back a couple years later: take it to them, get the job done, and have a good convincing 6-1 victory was pleasing to see. We are headed in the right direction at the moment, so we can’t be too much happier than that.”
Singles were the most competitive as ETSU battled with Akron.
ETSU won all the matches except one.
In the No. 3 spot, Ana Gerbasi earned a come-from-behind win for the Buccaneers.
One of the dominating performances in the singles came from senior Jessica Brumit.
Following the win, Brumit improved her singles record to 5-0 this season.
“I am feeling really good. Each match I feel like I have been improving … on a roll and I just hope I can keep that up,” Brumit said.
The doubles seemed easy as No. 1, No.2 and No. 3 spots took a 6-1 win resulting in a win for the Bucs.
The Bucs have their next game in Rock Hill, South Carolina, against the Winthrop Eagles.
