ATLANTA, Ga.- The Sailfish women’s tennis team began their long weekend trip to Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday with a dominating 9-0 win over Clark Atlanta University. The victory helps the Fish bounce back from their recent loss at Nova Southeastern University on Thursday while improving their overall record to 14-5 on the season.

The top two doubles pairings for the Fish produced 8-0 wins on Saturday while the third match was won by PBA by default.

Victoria Baca played in the No. 1-singles slot on Saturday with a 2-0 lead in the first set before an injury required her competition to retire.

Leydi Zora earned a 6-0, 6-2 win at No. 2-singles while Maria Jimenez stepped up into the No. 3-singles slot with a 6-3, 6-1 win.

Liddy Robinson continued the PBA streak with a 7-6, 7-5 win at No. 4-singles while the Fish were victorious by default in their final two singles pairings.
