Allegheny Netters Blank Scots 9-0 in NCAC Opener

The College of Wooster women's tennis team opened up North Coast Athletic Conference action on Wednesday afternoon, suffering a 9-0 setback to Allegheny College at the Central Tennis and Fitness Center.

The Scots never found their rhythm, as the No. 2 doubles tandem of Brenna Hart and Erin Bauer and the No. 3 duo of Boo Flynn and Ashley Stockwell dropped identical 8-6 decisions to their counterparts, and the Gators also claimed the No. 1 doubles point to take a 3-0 lead into singles play.

In singles action, Allegheny eased through the first two matches before Hart, Wooster's No. 3 player, fought hard before losing the first set by a 7-6 count, 7-2 in the tiebreaker, and a 6-3 mark in the second set. The visitors cruised through the final three matches with straight-set victories to seal the Scots' fate.

With the loss, Wooster dropped to 2-7 overall and 0-1 in NCAC East action, while Allegheny improved to 8-5 overall and notches their first win in as many attempts in league play.

The Scots have little time to recover as they play host to non-conference foe Heidelberg University (1-0) on Thursday in a match beginning at 4 p.m.
