Tennis: LWC Women blank Red Wolves to open NAIA play

By Kyle Jackson

Mobile, AL - No. 9-seeded Lindsey Wilson women's tennis opened NAIA Championship play today with a 4-0 win over No. 24-seed IU East (IN) at the Mobile Tennis Center.

The Blue Raiders (22-3) advance to Wednesday's second round against No. 8-seed Middle Georgia State at 1pmCT.

Lindsey Wilson captured the doubles point and three singles matches to advance.

Darija Mladenovic and Anastasiia Ivanchenko began the day by winning the third-seeded doubles match. The Blue Raider duo defeated Mackenzie Cook and Sophie Wilkinson 6-0.

Alexandra Parra and Lucia Mora locked up the doubles point with a 6-4 win over Linda Marino and Camila Caballero. Parra and Mora improve to 14-2 this season as a tandem with the win.

Needing just three singles wins to advance, the Blue Raiders did just that.

Salome Sposetti started the singles wins with a 6-0, 6-0 victory over Laura Billing to give Lindsey Wilson a 2-0 team lead. Sposetti improves to 19-0 and remains undefeated this season in singles play.

Ivanchenko picked up the second singles win of the day for the Blue Raiders after taking down Mackenzie Cook 6-0, 6-1.

Lucia Mora sealed the win for the Blue Raiders with her 59th career win in the third-seeded match. She defeated Caballero 7-5, 6-2 to improve to 59-13 all-time -- including 18-5 this season. Mora is now only two wins away from matching Candela Castanon's program-record 61 singles wins.

The remainder of the matches were halted once Lindsey Wilson reached the four points necessary for the team win.
