Coming off of a three game skid, the Georgia Southern women’s tennis team was set to host 3 matches over the weekend, in hopes to get back on the winning track.

Their eventful weekend started off against SCAD-Savannah on Saturday from Wallis Tennis Center, where the Eagles were able to take care of business against the Bees 5-2.

GS was able to take a 1-0 lead after doubles play, and the early momentum seemed to carry over to the singles matches.

Junior Emilia Bujan dropped a tough first set in the early going of singles matches, but set the bar for the rest of the Eagles when she won the next 2 sets to claim the match.

The win against SCAD not only snapped a tough losing streak, but also seemed to propel the Eagles into playing fantastic in their matches on Sunday.

The Eagles squared off against Middle Georgia State University early Sunday morning, and were able to come away with their second straight 5-2 victory.

The Blue and White had very little time to rest on Easter Sunday, because shortly after their win against the Knights from MGSU, they were set to face up against the College of Coastal Georgia.

The team continued to keep up their winning ways, and easily took care of business against the Mariners 7-0, in fact the Eagles did not lose a single match in singles or doubles play.

With their record now standing at 9-6 after their successful weekend, the Eagles will shift their focus to in state opponent Mercer, who will head to Statesboro to challenge GS on Wednesday, April 4.

Action from Wallis Tennis Center on Wednesday is set to begin at 2 p.m.
