CHARLOTTE, N.C. -
The Charlotte women's tennis
team was finally able to get back on the courts Thursday afternoon, but the
49ers suffered a 5-2 setback to visiting Elon at the Halton-Wagner Tennis
Complex. The Niners picked up their lone two points in singles action after the
Phoenix captured the doubles point.
Elon (9-1) jumped in front 1-0 early by claiming victories at the No. 2 and No.
3 doubles slots, wrestling the point away from the hosts.
Despite the deficit, Charlotte (6-3) was able to garner a triumph in one-third
of the singles contests. Sophomore Lisa Grosselius
handed Viviana Stavreva a
6-3, 6-4 setback at the No. 3 position, while senior Anna Ekelund
tallied a 6-7
(4), 6-3, 10-6 win against Barbora Lazarova in the No. 5 meeting.
During the match, senior Ginny Johnson
saw her first action of the spring
playing at No. 3 doubles.
