The Govs continued their dominance in the singles matches, winning every contested match besides a forfeit at No. 6 singles.
Lidia Yanes Garcia, Fabienne Schmidt, Helena Kuppig, and Ana Albertson all won in straight sets to seal the match before Brittney Covington won an epic three-set match over ORU’s Andrea Vasiljevic (4-6, 7-5, 10-8).
The Govs (1-2) were again without Claudia Yanes Garcia due to injury, meaning there were only five players available for today’s match. The Govs automatically forfeited the No. 3 doubles and No. 6 singles matches as a result.
The Govs play next at 9:00am, Sunday, February 18th against host Central Arkansas in the same venue as today.
