The Governors (12-0) have experimented with a couple different lineups and pairings in doubles as of late, but showed no signs of rust once again against the Lions (5-8)

Tatiana Lopez and Honoka Nakanishi moved up to the No. 1 doubles spot last match against Dayton and once again played there today, winning 6-2. The duo have now won eight straight doubles across the No. 1 and No. 2 positions.

The Yanes Garcia duo kept rolling along as well, winning 6-1 at No. 2 doubles to give the Govs a 1-0 lead heading into singles. Despite the Govs having won the doubles point, the new pairing of Fabienne Schmidt and Danielle Morris played out their match at No. 3 doubles, winning in a tiebreaker, 7-6.

Like they have done all throughout this season, the Govs rolled over their opponents in singles. Claudia Yanes Garcia continued her unbeaten singles season to this point with a dominant 6-0, 6-1 win at No. 2 singles to put the Govs up 2-0.

Schmidt is quickly finding her form in singles as well, winning 6-2, 6-3, at No. 4 singles to bring the win in sight. Lidia Yanes Garcia clinched it for the Govs with a workmanlike 6-4, 6-2 victory at the No. 1 spot, assuring the Govs they will be unbeaten heading into Ohio Valley Conference play.

Lopez, Morris, and Helena Kuppig all picked up straight-set wins in singles as well, as the Lions were the seventh team to fall victim to the Govs without winning a set.

The Govs host Tennessee State to open up OVC play, 10:00am, Saturday.
