Women’s Tennis Ends Season with 6-3 Loss to Sweet Briar

LEXINGTON, Va. – At the 2010 ODAC Women's Tennis Championships, the Bridgewater Eagles fell by a 6-3 tally to the Sweet Briar Vixens in an extremely tight matchup in quarterfinal play.

In doubles action, the Eagles took just one match as the duo of Morgan McGhee and Olivia Stone posted an 8-5 win at number two.

At number one and number three, the Eagles fell in a pair of tight 8-6 decisions.

Bridgewater dropped the top three singles matches, with the number one and three matchups being decided by two games or fewer in each set.

Senior Megan Mathias closed out her BC career with a tough 6-4, 6-4 loss at number one. Mathias leaves Bridgewater with the fourth highest career singles wins total in program history with 35. The Moorefield, W.Va. native also notched 33 doubles victories to place her in fifth on the career doubles wins list.

Freshman Olivia Stone fell by a 6-1, 6-0 tally at number two while senior Alissa Michael fell in a hard fought match at number three by a 7-5, 6-4 score. Michael leaves BC in a tie for second on the career singles wins list with 39. Her 49 career doubles victories are tops in program history to go along with her program-best 88 combined wins.

Bridgewater got its first singles victory at number four as McGhee notched a 7-6, 7-6 win in the tightest match of the day.

Sophomore Ally McConaughy kept things rolling for the Eagles with her 7-5, 6-3 win at number five before freshman Amanda Gorby fell in three sets by a 6-1, 3-6, 6-1 score at number six.

The 2009-10 season was special for the Eagles as the single season doubles wins record fell at the hands of McConaughy and sophomore teammate Emily Schweitzer.

Gorby came up just one win shy of tying the single season wins mark with 14 victories during her rookie campaign.

Bridgewater ends the season at 9-10 overall.
