Asheville, N.C. - Gardner-Webb women's tennis took a shortened match at Big South opponent UNC Asheville, winning 4-0 on the road in its regular season finale.

GWU (13-8, 4-4) evened its Big South record with the win and ended its regular season with a four match winning streak with the conference tournament ahead.

Another Runnin' Bulldog freshman picked up a singles win Wednesday, as Yasmin Doost (Bray, England) won the match at No. 6.
