Tennis triumphs at homeBy Dan Kelly
The UNCP women’s tennis team won their home opener against the Fayetteville State Broncos 5-4 on Feb. 15.
The elements played a serious factor as cold temperatures and biting winds were prevalent throughout the match.
In No. 1 singles, Braves player Stacey Wood had to retire in her match against Ines Nieves at 6-7(4-7), 0-4 in the second set due to leg cramps, according to Langley.
The Braves No. 2 singles player Natalie Dies won her match 6-0, 6-3 against Constance Lee while Wood was still playing in the epic first set of her match.
Earlier in doubles play, Langley made the decision to split up the normal top doubles team of Wood and Dies.
The shift in doubles worked as Wood/Music’ defeated Nieves/Artis 8-2 and Dies/Vrana defeated Watson/Lee 8-2.
