Appalachian State Women’s Tennis Edged Out by Louisiana

App State Tennis dropped a tight 4-3 decision to Louisiana at the Cajun Courts on Friday.

The Mountaineers (7-6, 4-2 Sun Belt) secured the doubles point to start the day, but the Ragin’ Cajuns (7-7, 2-4 Sun Belt) were able to finish off four singles wins to the Mountaineers’ two.

App State won doubles matches on court two (Helena Jansen and Erika Dodridge, 6-3) and three (Maggie Pate and Virginia Poggi, 6-4) to take a 1-0 lead.

On singles court two, freshman Savannah Dada-Mascoll – the reigning Sun Belt Player of the Week – extended her win streak to 10 with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Lucie Raquin. Poggi then battled to a 6-1, 5-7, 7-6 win over Laurie-Line Monnoyer on court five for the Mountaineers’ third and final point of the match.

App State continues its road swing Sunday with an 11 a.m. ET start at Texas State.
