App State Women’s Tennis Competes at Coastal Carolina Event

In its second event of the fall season, App State Tennis was dominating in doubles play at the Lynn Stevens Memorial Invitational, hosted by Coastal Carolina.

Head coach Ashleigh Antal’s Mountaineers won two of three doubles matches against the host Chanticleers on Friday before going 6-1 in doubles Saturday against Charleston Southern and Queens University.

“I’m really proud of our competing and spirit this weekend,” Antal said. “This was a great benchmark of where we are already in the season. I’m very happy with the progress we’ve made. The spirit of this group is fantastic. I’m excited for another opportunity next week for us to get better.”

The duo of Erika Dodridge and Virginia Poggi went a perfect 3-0 on the weekend, including a 6-2 win against Coastal on Friday and 6-2 and 6-3 wins over Queens and Charleston Southern, respectively, on Saturday.

Maggie Pate and Savannah Dada-Mascoll won a pair of matches over Coastal (6-3) and Queens (6-0). Helena Jansen and Ellie Murphy captured wins over Queens (6-0) and Charleston Southern (6-3).

In singles action, the Mountaineers racked up 11 victories over the two-day event, led by Jansen in the No. 1 spot with a 3-0 record. Poggi, Dodridge and Dada-Mascoll collected two victories apiece, while Pate and Riley Collins also notched individual victories.
