'I’m proud of them. They did great.'
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – It was an historic day for the Eastern Florida State College women’s tennis team.
By defeating NJCAA Region 8/FCSAA foe Hillsborough Community College 7-2 at the Jimmy Moore Courts on Tuesday, the Titans set a program record with their fourth victory of the season.
“That’s real big for us,” EFSC coach Wally Norwich said.
“I’m proud of them. They did great.”
The Titans’ No 1 doubles team of Linn Sorman and Isabella Sella got their team off to a strong start, defeating Hillsborough’s Jovana Milosevic and Danielle Shea 8-1. That’s a big improvement over the previous meeting, where Sorman and Sella edged out a 9-7 victory.
“They played the best they have all season,” Norwich said.
It didn’t stop there. Sorman defeated Sheridan Shea 6-2, 6-1 in No. 1 singles action and Sella shut out Danielle Shea 6-0, 6-0 their No. 3 singles matchup.
Not only did the victory improve Sella’s season record to 8-1 but the sophomore from Valinhos, Brazil has not dropped a single game in two matches this week.
Freshman Nicole Trio of Satellite Beach is also having an impressive season. Her victory 6-1, 6-1 over Milosevic at No. 4 Tuesday improved her singles record to 7-2 on the season.
“Nicole is a very tough competitor,” Norwich said.
“She’s just real consistent, a very smart player.”
Cocoa Beach’s Alexandra Andrews defeated Hillsborough’s Evana St. Clair 6-1, 6-3 at No. 5 singles. It was Andrews’ third win in a row.
Due to an injury sustained just before the start of the match, Hillsborough defaulted its No. 3 doubles and its No. 6 singles, giving Samantha Martin the win in the latter match.
The Titans (4-5) were scheduled to play Western New England University on Wednesday, but that match has been cancelled.
EFSC will be in action again on Friday when it travels to Jacksonville to play Florida State College.
