Women's Tennis Celebrates Senior Day With Victory Over Coppin State
Baltimore, Md. – The UMBC women's tennis team handled the Coppin State Eagles, 6-0, on Senior Day at the Retriever Tennis Complex.
Seniors Kim Berghaus (Offenbach, Germany) and Josefin Stange-Jonsson (Vasteras, Sweden) were victorious in both of their matches for the day. Both players blanked their singles and doubles opponents in their final home match as UMBC tennis players.
Head Coach Rob Hubbard was reflective of the leaving senior class after the match, "If we can bring in a new class as good as these ladies, the program will be in a great position for the future".
With the doubles point in hand, junior Isabel Aldunate (Bowie, Md.) and freshman Mariami Dolashvili (Alushta, Ukraine) also blanked their opponents, at the Nos. 4 and 3 positions respectively.
Madlena Kuracz (Zlotoryja, Poland) defeated her opponent, 6-0, 6-1, at number 2, and Coppin State defaulted the final point of the match.
After the match ended, the seniors had some kind words for their teammates and coaches, and they received gifts from their friends to commemorate their time with UMBC tennis.
The Retrievers visit the Maryland Terrapins Wednesday, April 16, for their next match.
