WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (Jan. 23, 2005) - The East Tennessee State women's tennis team dropped their second match of the season 7-0 against the No. 28 ranked team of William of Mary Sunday at the McCormack-Nagelsen Tennis Center. The Buccaneers fall to 0-2, while the Tribešs record improves to 1-0.

            W&M opened the contest by winning all three doubles matches. Sandie Knight (Adamstown, Australia) and Elena Volobueva (Barcelona, Spain) fell at No. 2 to the 10th rankied doubles team in the nation of Amy Wei and Megan Muth, 8-1.
