The Lynchburg Women’s Tennis Team is back on track after dropping their first competition of the year to Sweet Briar. The ladies have gone on a nice tear recently winning their three competitions with a combined 22-4 record. 

The Hornets will be back in action tomorrow against Southern Virginia as they continue their six game road stretch through the month of April. The Hornets will finish the season with five straight ODAC teams including powerhouse Washington and Lee as the season finale at home.

Senior Alissa Anderson said, “The girls have bounced back from the tough loss really well.” 

The Hornets are a relatively young team with only one senior.

Junior Grace Teefey said, “ I think as a team we have a lot of potential considering that we are young but that is the blessing for us. We have a team that almost doesn’t know better and the goal is to continue to improve throughout the rest of the year until we hit ODACs and by the time we will be hitting our full potential.”

The Hornets will look to continue their season dominance the rest of the year as they hope to finish in the top three of the conference.

Anderson looks to win her 50th competition of her career which would be an incredible honor, especially given the circumstances of dealing with the pandemic.

Anderson said, “I am just really excited to see what we can do as a team and I think that this accomplishment has to do with all my teammates that I have played with, not me as a tennis player.”

The Hornets have several intriguing matchups left on their schedule. Before the conference tournament, the Hornets still have to play the following teams: Randolph, Virginia Wesleyan, Randolph-Macon and Washington & Lee.
