The Lees-McRae Lady Bobcats tennis team swept the Converse College All Stars 3-0 in doubles play, only to fall 5-4 in a Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference match up Tuesday afternoon. The Lady Bobcats fall to 6-14, (2-7 CVAC).
Katherine Smith and Jenna Simpson squeezed out a 9-8(6) win over Tina Rohner and Rhett Smodic in the #2 doubles match while the pairings of Cameron Joyce/Kasey Mabe and Ashley Mayers/Renee Roberson handled their matches easily with 8-2 and 8-1 wins respectively. Unfortunately, the Lady Bobcats were unable to maintain the momentum as the All Stars took five of a possible six points in singles play. Simpson, (pictured top left), scored the lone Lees-McRae point during singles play.
The Lady Bobcats will conclude their regular season schedule this Saturday as they visit Division I Elon University. Matches are set to begin at 11:00am.
