Women's tennis on a hot streak
Coastal Carolina women’s tennis has won their last three matches, improving their record to 10-5 on the season.

On Wednesday, Mar. 14, the Lady Chanticleers edged out a win over College of Charleston, winning 4-3.
The Chants opened the match taking the doubles point on courts one and three.
Sara Bondar and Somer Dalla-Bona began the day with a 6-1 victory at the number one court and Iryna Vardanian and Natalie Wall finished the point with a 6-3 win at the number three court.
Rylie Cox gave the lead back to Coastal with a 6-1, 6-4 win at the number four court, and Vardanian clinched the match with a 6-2, 7-6 victory at the number one court.
On Mar. 16, the Lady Chanticleers swept USC Upstate 7-0 with the Chants taking courts one through five in straight sets, and Jessie Mount won by default at court number six.
This was the third shutout for the women’s tennis team this season.
