Wolfpack Women's Tennis Hosts VCU Thursday
March 13, 2013
RALEIGH, N.C. – The NC State women’s tennis team will put its unblemished record on the line when it plays the second of its five-match home stand Thursday, Mar. 14, at 4 p.m. at the Curtis and Jacqueline Dail Outdoor Tennis Stadium.
Last Time Out:
The Pack took two of three doubles matches to win the doubles point, before going on to take five of six singles matches to seal the 6-1 win over UNCW. Junior Joelle Kissell and freshman Rachael James-Baker both dropped the first sets of their singles contests, but rallied back to win the final two frames in their respective matches.
The Rams enter Thursday’s matchup with an 11-4 record on the season. At this point in the season, VCU and NC State share a trio of common opponents in Winthrop, Wake Forest and South Florida, as both teams defeated those opponents earlier this season.
VCU is led by Salome Kvitashvili’s 16-6 singles record, while Olga Barscheheuskaya owns a 12-4 mark and is 5-2 in dual matches. Daria Yakauleva and Olga Terteac lead the Rams with a 6-1 doubles record, which includes a 3-1 ledger in dual matches.
