Grove City sweeps Waynesburg to conclude regular season

WAYNESBURG, Pa. -- The Grove City College women's tennis team concluded its regular-season schedule with its third-consecutive Presidents' Athletic Conference sweep, rolling to a 9-0 victory at Waynesburg on Monday afternoon.

Grove City (8-3, 7-1), who has swept five conference matches this season, won all three doubles matches before earning victories in all six of the singles flights.

Senior Caroline McGuire (Shorewood, Wis./Dominican) and junior Karolina Lagerquist (Pittsburgh, Pa./Fox Chapel) both were double-winners on the day. The duo paired for an 8-2 victory at first doubles before each dropped just a singles game in winning their individual matches at first and second singles, respectively.

Freshman Janine Jones (Cleveland, Ohio/Nordonia) and junior Leah Thomsen (Cary, N.C./Cary Christian) teamed for an 8-3 win at third doubles. Jones then rolled to a 6-1, 6-3 victory at third singles while Thomsen played Grove City's toughest match of the day, pulling out a 6-2, 5-7, 10-3 super-tiebreaker win at sixth singles.

After teaming with senior Kendra Tetrick (Beaver, Pa./Beaver) for an 8-2 win at second doubles, sophomore Linnea Peters (Carmel, Ind./Carmel) didn't drop a game in her fourth singles victory. Senior Leah White (Ellicott City, Md./Howard) earned the Wolverines remaining win, earning a 6-1, 6-2 triumph at fifth singles.

Grove City will compete in the 2014 Presidents' Athletic Conference Championships this Friday at Saturday at the Pennbriar Club in Erie. Seeding for Friday's draws will be announced later this week.
