Wooster Doubles Up Malone, 6-3

The College of Wooster women's tennis team won its non-conference match at Malone University rather handily on Tuesday, doubling up the Pioneers 6-3 in Canton, Ohio.

Wooster (3-7) set the tone by prevailing in two of the three doubles matches, highlighted by a hard-fought 8-6 decision for Elissa Lauber and Kelsey Jenkins at the No. 1 position. That raised their record together to 3-5, while Ashley Stockwell and Boo Flynn provided the Fighting Scots' other doubles point with a dominant 8-1 victory at No. 3. The Stockwell-Flynn combination is an even 5-5 this season.

In singles action, Wooster lost at the top of the lineup, but still cruised to the win with straight-set triumphs at No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, and No. 6. Stockwell, Jenkins, and Flynn were all double winners on the day, as Stockwell prevailed 6-2, 6-3 in the second position, Jenkins 6-3, 6-3 against her fourth singles opponent, and Flynn 6-1, 6-1 at the sixth slot. Brenna Hart, who was not part of doubles, took a first set tiebreaker 7-1 and then cruised in the second set to the tune of 6-2.

The Scots will be back in action late Friday afternoon at Case Western Reserve University (1-11).
