The UTC Women’s Tennis team closed out play at the Austin Peay Fall Classic on Saturday against UT Martin, getting wins in singles and doubles. 

The lone singles win came from Polina Goloputova, Astana, Kazakhstan. Her victory in the consolation round propelled her to the finals where she was defeated by Austin Peay’s Danielle Morris, 6-3, 6-0. 

Goloputova also accounted for the Mocs’ doubles victory as she and her partner, Callie Billman, Mount Pleasant SC, scored a 6-3 victory, but fell short in the finals to Danielle Morris and her partner, Fabienne Schmidt. 

After fighting hard this weekend, the Mocs have an exciting week to look forward to. The Women’s Tennis alumni match will take place on Saturday, Sept. 21. This will be a welcomed opportunity for some friendly competition against some former Mocs tennis stars. 

They’ll have to remain focused, however, as they’ll be right back into competition on Sept. 27 when they attend the Central Arkansas Fall Invitational.
