WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- The Palm Beach Atlantic women’s tennis team continues to play solid from top to bottom of their lineup with another 9-0 win on Wednesday. The victory over the University of Southern Indiana improves the Fish to 12-4 on the season while earning their seventh straight victory.
Welcoming in yet another Spring Break visitor in USI, the Sailfish showed little struggle after a busy last week of tennis during their own Spring Break trip.
The No. 21-ranked Sailfish had three solid showings in doubles as they earned 8-4, 8-3 and 8-6 wins at Nos. 1-3 in doubles.
Veena Vasquez came away with a 6-1, 6-2 win atop singles while backed solidly by another strong performance from senior Victoria Baca at No. 2-singles as she boasted a 6-2, 6-0 win.
Natalia Trotter defeated her opponent 6-1, 6-1 at No. 3-singles while Vilja Vahatalo managed a similar score in a 6-1, 6-2 win at No. 4-singles. Jessica Wharton and Leyla Taracena closed out the sweep with dominating wins at the bottom.
PBA continues their recent homestand with their next match to be held on Monday, March 18 when they host Oklahoma Christian University at Gaines Park beginning at 3 pm.
