Georgia Southern Welcomes College of Charleston
The Eagles (12-5, 6-2) have taken seven of the past eight matches, falling only to Furman, and currently stand in fourth place on the SoCon leader board. Georgia Southern last took a 6-1 victory over Chattanooga (April 4) on its home court to improve to 7-1 at the Hanner Tennis Complex this season. Remaining undefeated from the No. 4 spot this season, sophomore Melanie Rolle will look to notch her 13th victory at the four court and improve on an 11-match win streak that dates back to February 14. Fellow classmate Ali Beavers boasts an 11-4 record from No.2, while senior Shea Huxtable records a 9-1 ledger at No. 6 this dual season.
Standing in second place in conference standings with a 19-4 overall mark and 7-1 SoCon record, College of Charleston enters Wednesday’s match coming off its only SoCon loss of the season. The Cougars dropped a 6-1 decision to Furman (April 9) as Keely Mulligan recorded the lone win of the afternoon for Charleston. The Paladins snapped an 11-match win streak CofC held going into the contest.
Georgia Southern will look to avenge a 7-0 sweep by Charleston in the 2008 regular season. The last time the Eagles recorded a win over the Cougars dates back to a 5-4 victory on March 6, 2000.
