JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Mar. 11, 2011) - The ETSU women's tennis team opened up its weekend homestand with an impressive 7-0 sweep over Belmont, Friday afternoon at the ETSU/MSHA Athletic Center.

"It is always pleasing to play the way we want and to come out on top," said ETSU Assistant Coach Travis Sandlant.
 
With the victory, the Bucs move to an even 5-5 on the year and 2-1 in A-Sun play, while Belmont falls to 5-7 and 1-2 in the A-Sun.
 
The Bucs got out to a quick 1-0 victory after taking each of the three doubles matches on the day.
 
ETSU remained in control throughout singles play as well by taking each of the six matches in straight sets. Junior Paula Jaime (Madrid, Spain) earned a quick 6-1, 6-0 victory over Fabiana Mersan at the No. 1 position. Just a few minutes later, senior Kelly Holtzhausen (Johannesburg, South Africa) rolled past Abby Leatherwood at the No. 2 position, 6-4, 6-0. Then, Marine Wieliczko (Rouen, France) got back to her winning ways by knocking off Catherine Holliday, 6-4, 6-1.
