FERRUM, Va. -- Ferrum College dropped an Old Dominion Athletic Conference women's tennis match to University of Lynchburg this afternoon at home, falling 9-0 at the Burrows-Skeens Tennis Courts.

Lynchburg (1-0, 1-0 ODAC)
Ferrum (0-2, 0-2 ODAC)

Lynchburg grabbed an early 3-0 lead after taking all three doubles matches. Jordan Thompson and Hailee Green dropped a hard-fought match in the #3 spot, losing 8-6 to Reagan Coon and Sarah Wyly.

The Hornets then swept all six singles matches. Ferrum's Alexandria Dixon took the opening set 6-2 from Wyly in the #2 singles spot, but dropped the second set 6-2 to force a winner-take-all third set. Since Lynchburg had already claimed the team win, a super tiebreak was played instead of a complete third set, with Wyly earning a 10-5 win.

"Even though we lost, our team took another step forward today. Hopefully, we can continue to improve everyday and every match." --Head Coach Rod Baker

Coach Rod Baker's team will play next on Saturday, March 9, at Guilford College. The ODAC match is scheduled to begin at 2:0 p.m. in Greensboro, North Carolina.
