Box Score

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- The Palm Beach Atlantic women’s tennis team returned to action again on Wednesday afternoon by hosting Seton Hill (Pa.) University at the Oxbridge Academy Courts. The cooler temperatures didn’t slow down the Sailfish as they claimed a 9-0 sweep of the Griffins to improve to 14-5 on the season.

The match was never in much doubt on Wednesday as the Fish earned three dominant wins in doubles while no singles matchup went beyond the necessary two sets in favor of the Blue and White.

Veena Vasquez and Natalia Trotter combined for an 8-1 win atop doubles followed up by an 8-2 win from  Leyla Taracena and Maria Jimenez at No. 2-doubles. Vilja Vahatalo and Liddy Robinson managed an 8-1 win at No. 3-doubles.

Vasquez was joined by Jimenez and Robinson with straight set wins at Nos. 1, 5 and 6 singles.

Victoria Baca and Jessica Wharton also claimed wins in singles as Baca (No. 2-singles) managed a 6-0, 6-1 win while Wharton (No. 3-singles) posted a 6-2, 6-3 victory.

Taracena rounded out the victory by claiming a 6-2, 6-0 win at No. 4-singles for the Fish.

PBA will be off from competitive action over the Easter holiday and will not return to the courts until April 4 when they host Northwood University for their final home match of the season.  The match will take place at the Oxbridge Academy Courts with a 4 pm start time.
