HILTON HEAD, S.C.- The Palm Beach Atlantic University women’s tennis team continued to do solid work over Spring Break this week as they added another win to their total on Wednesday with a 9-0 win over Young Harris College (Ga.). Senior Katie Livesay led the way with a straight sets win at #5-singles while the rest of the roster followed suit with similarly dominating individual performances.

Livesay would team with Vuokko Vahatalo to earn an 8-0 win at #3-doubles as the other two doubles tandems put forth solid results as Victoria Baca and Natalia Trotter won 8-4 at #1-doubles while Jessica Wharton and Jordan Ittersagen came away with an 8-1 win at #2-doubles.

Sensing an opportunity to see some of his reserves see some valuable court time, head coach Chi Ly inserted Maria Jimenez into the #4-singles spot for a 6-1, 6-0 win while Liddy Robinson found success as well at #6-singles with a 6-1, 6-4 victory.

The Fish will be back in action on Thursday, March 10th when they take on Slippery Rock University at 12 pm.
