JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- The East Tennessee State University women's tennis team today defeated Chattanooga, 5-4, on the ETSU tennis courts. It was the Bucs fourth consecutive win and improved their record to 11-4, 5-1 in the Southern Conference. Chattanooga fell to 10-10 overall, 6-2 in the Southern Conference.

It was a hard-fought match for ETSU. After having to default at No. 6 singles, the Bucs trailed 4-2 heading into doubles competition. ETSU swept the three matches, winning 9-7 at the No. 2 spot.

Megan Edwards won a grueling three-set affair at No. 4 singles and Eglantine Vitse won the other singles point at No. 5.
