Herd in action at Thunder in the Mountains.

The Thundering Herd Women’s Tennis Team went on a short road trip to Charleston over the weekend to participate in the fall event Thunder in the Mountains. 

Marshall brought the thunder on the first day, winning 12 matches. The Herd tallied six singles and six doubles wins. Emma Vanderheyden and her partner Sophia Hurrion had an untarnished record of 3-0.

Everyone was excited to get the season started,” said Herd tennis head coach John Mercer said.  “It’s great to be close to home in Charleston, and our team really appreciates their hospitality.”

The doubles teams proved to be a challenge for the Herd’s opponents from Radford and Cleveland State. Marshall’s doubles teams put up a perfect 4-0 record on day two. The pairings only gave up five games across four matches.

Vanderheyden and Rieke Gillar picked up singles victories on day two, with Vanderheyden knocking off WVU’s Love-Star Alexis and Gillar beating Selma Tounsi of Cleveland State.

On the final day, Marshall faced Cleveland State in a total of seven matches, winning six. Hurrion did not drop a single game in her singles matchup.

We had a solid last day,” Mercer said. “We made good improvement as we went along.”

The Herd finished Thunder in the Mountains with a combined 24 wins.
