JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Mar. 11, 2011) - The ETSU women's tennis team opened up its weekend homestand with an impressive 7-0 sweep over Belmont, Friday afternoon at the ETSU/MSHA Athletic Center.

With the victory, the Bucs move to an even 5-5 on the year and 2-1 in A-Sun play, while Belmont falls to 5-7 and 1-2 in the A-Sun.
 
The Bucs got out to a quick 1-0 victory after taking each of the three doubles matches on the day.

Junior Paula Jaime (Madrid, Spain) earned a quick 6-1, 6-0 victory over Fabiana Mersan at the No. 1 position. Just a few minutes later, senior Kelly Holtzhausen (Johannesburg, South Africa) rolled past Abby Leatherwood at the No. 2 position, 6-4, 6-0.
