W&M Women’s Tennis Continues CAA Winning Ways at Charleston

(Tribe Athletics)

CHARLESTON, S.C. — William & Mary women’s tennis extended its season win streak to four and its CAA tally to 17 in a row with a 6-1 win at Charleston on Saturday afternoon.

Dating back to the 2022 season, the Tribe (8-5, 2-0 CAA) has won 17 consecutive matches against league opponents, including the CAA Tournament.

W&M captured the doubles point with victories at the top two positions, before winning five of the six singles posts. Making her dual-match debut for the Tribe, junior Alessandra Anghel clinched the team triumph with a straight-sets win at No. 5. Graduate student Mila Mejic, juniors Hedda Gurholt and Ine Stange, and freshman Francesca Davis each notched singles wins against the Cougars (9-4, 1-1 CAA).

How It Happened

  • W&M captured the doubles point for the 10th time in 13 matches and fourth in a row.
  • The Tribe dropped just three games in winning at the top two positions. Graduate student Yu Chen and junior Emma Fernald rolled to a 6-1 victory over Francesca Salvato and Halli Trinkle at No. 1. The duo won its third in a row, improving to 7-3 at the top spot.
  • Gurholt and Stange clinched the initial point of the match with a 6-2 triumph over Peyton Brotzman and Mckenzie Daniel at No. 2. The Tribe tandem won its second-straight, running its ledger to 6-4 on line two.
  • Davis increased the Tribe lead to 2-0 with a straight-sets win at No. 6. She won an unblemished first set, 6-0, before topping Anna Neyestani in the second, 6-4. Davis improved to 12-9 overall and 5-1 at No. 6.
  • Gurholt won her third in a row at the top spot. The Tribe junior upended Maja Jekauc, 6-1, 6-3, for her team-leading 18th singles victory. Gurholt upped her mark to 6-2 at the top spot.
  • Anghel cemented the Tribe victory behind a 7-5, 6-1 triumph over Francesca Salvato at No. 5. Dating back to the fall season, she has won five matches in a row and improved to 9-3 on the year.
  • Stange won her fifth-straight contest at No. 4. The Tribe junior bounced Peyton Brotzman in straight-sets, 6-3, 6-2, to improve to 11-6 overall and 7-4 in duals.
  • Mejic rounded out the Tribe victory with a come-from-behind three-set win at No. 3. After dropping the opening set to Oziera Ahmad, 6-2, the Green and Gold graduate student rallied to win the final two sets, 6-1, 6-4, for her third triumph in a row. Mejic evened her season ledger at 9-9 with her fifth victory at No. 3.
