The Marshall University Tennis Team finished strong at the Greyhounds Women’s Tennis Classic in Baltimore over the weekend, Oct. 13-15.

Gabrielle Clairotte and Emily Schut won 2-1 over Lauryn Hall and Averiana Mitchell from Morgan State. The partners also won their singles matches; Clairotte won her singles match in two straight sets over Hall.

The pair went on to defeat Howard University’s Dana Hall and Nadia Pegram 2-1 in the semifinals to advance them to the Green Draw finals.

Rieke Gillar and Andjela Lopicic swept their opponents from Morgan State 3-0 to reach the Green Draw fifth-place match.

“Our ladies competed hard today, especially in the afternoon,” said Robin Cambier, Herd tennis associate head coach. “It’s good to compete against regional opponents.”

Due to inclement weather, the competitors kept off the courts on Saturday, Oct. 14, and had to wait until Sunday to conclude their remaining finals matches.

Clairotte and Schut carried their Friday momentum into the final day to win the Green Draw. The pair dominated their opponents from Towson University, beating them 6-1. The Herd also stood out in singles as Schut won via walkover in singles.

The Herd pairing of Gillar and Lopicic went on to dominate in the consolation finals against Loyola Marymount University, winning 6-2. The pair took down their singles opponents in straight sets to seal the win.

Marshall women’s tennis will be back in action Thursday, Oct. 19, in Lynchburg, Virginia, for the ITA Atlantic Regional.
