Appalachian State Women’s Tennis Edged Out by Wofford

Competing in its fifth straight road match, the App State tennis team dropped a tightly contested match at Wofford by a score of 4-3 on Sunday.

The Mountaineers (3-4) gained an early advantage by winning the doubles points following victories from Ellie Murphy and Savannah Dada-Mascoll at No. 1 (6-2) and Brooke Gruber and Virginia Poggi at No. 3 (6-3).

Poggi was the first to finish her singles match with a sound 6-2, 6-3 win over Wofford’s Georgia Fischer at No. 4, but the Terriers (7-4) won each of the next four singles bouts to claim the team victory.

The last singles match to finish was at No. 2, where Dada-Mascoll overcome a 6-4 defeat in the first set to win the next two sets 6-4 and 7-5 for the victory over Wofford’s Breda Brennan. Dada-Mascoll, a freshman from Yorkshire, England, has earned four straight singles victories and owns a team-best 4-1 singles record this spring.

App State’s next scheduled match is the March 11 Sun Belt opener against Arkansas State in Boone.
