Vanderbilt University women’s tennis team defeated UCF 4-1 in its second home match of the season. Aleke Tsoubanos, Commodores head-coach explained: “That was a heck of a college tennis match. UCF is a very good team. I thought we competed really well in doubles and singles and took some momentum from the doubles point into singles sets.
Anessa Lee continues to impress, and I thought Holly Staff getting to her second set when she did was really important for the emotional energy of the dual Amy pulling through her second set tiebreak was huge to keep momentum for the team, and it was obviously huge for Bridget to regroup and clinch the match.” In singles, Amy Stevens won a hard-fought battle in a second-set tiebreak on Court 5 to put Vandy within one.
Ultimately, Stammel won it for the Dores in the third set. Lee extended her win streak to 12 with back-to-back 6-0 set victories. Commodores got the doubles point with wins from Marcella Cruz and Celia-Belle Mohr and the duo of Anessa Lee and Bridget Stammel.
