Program Record Winning Streak Ends for L-R Women’s Tennis

Lenoir-Rhyne women’s tennis saw its 13-match winning streak come to an end on Saturday, falling 5-2 to Carson-Newman at home. The loss marked the first blemish in SAC play for the No. 13 Bears.

Winning for LR was Gemma Southwick and Lucy Whelan at No. 1 doubles (6-4), Evegniya Pugina at No. 2 singles, and Lucy Whelan at No. 4 singles. The Bears dropped several close decisions in other matches as well.

LR is back in action on Tuesday when they travel to rival Wingate for a 2 p.m. first serve with the Bulldogs.
