Xavier Closes Out Regular Season With Win Over Bonnies
April 13, 2013
OLEAN, N.Y. - The Xavier women's tennis regular season came to a close with another dominating win as the Musketeers defeated St. Bonaventure, 6-1, on Saturday.
The Musketeers finished the regular season with a 17-5 overall record and went 9-0 against Atlantic 10 foes. Up next for Xavier will be the A-10 Championship which begins on Thursday in Charlottesville, Va.
"I am really proud of how our girls have performed this regular season," head coach Eric Toth said. "It has been a total team effort with contributions from many. We should be in good position to make a nice run at playing deep into next weekend in Charlottesville. I'm really confident this group can deliver."
The Musketeers will await notification of its first round opponent, which is expected to come from the conference office on Monday. Xavier will most likely earn a top seed in the 16-team field.
Freshman Alex Brinker once again played at the top spot for the Musketeers capturing her 19-consecutive win. She will be in the running for freshman of the year after a dominating first-year performance.
In doubles action Xavier needed wins from No. 2 and No. 3 positions to earn the doubles point. It was the fourth-consecutive match that XU won the doubles point.
Patton and Westling and the combination of Brinker and Megan Morris cruised to wins.
