Tennis seasons come to an end

Tennis seasons come to an end

The GSW men's and women's tennis teams were defeated by identical 5-0 scores on Friday in the first round of the Peach Belt Conference Tournaments hosted by Clayton State.

The GSW men, seeded ninth in their tournament, finished the 2009 season with a 5-13 record after dropping a Friday afternoon match with #8 North Georgia. NGCSU swept all three tightly contested doubles matches, stealing No. 1 and No. 3 doubles 9-7, while taking No. 2 doubles 8-4. The Saints then clinched the match in singles as NGCSU picked up victories in straight sets at No. 4 and No. 5 to seal the 5-0 victory over the Hurricanes. 

The Lady Hurricanes, seeded 11th, finished at 4-17. Southwestern's best chance for a victory came at No. 1 doubles where Leady Cuellar and Lauren Grogan were defeated 8-6. The Hurricane duo lost to that same team 8-1 earlier in the season. GCSU lost only one game in the other four matches on Friday morning.
