FUS women's tennis wins
STEUBENVILLE - The Franciscan University of Steubenville women's tennis team beat Bethany College, 8-1, Tuesday at Belleview Park.
"I'm super proud of the way the girls played today, specifically the No. 2 doubles, Ashley Veazey and Claire Haddad. They really played a very clean, strategic match," Lynch said. "They really had it together today."
After winning 8-0 in the doubles set, freshman Haddad continued to shine throughout her singles match with a 6-4, 6-0 win.
"I asked her to really challenge herself mentally for the second set and she did exactly that. She challenged herself in the middle of the match to play her game and not the opponents," Lynch said. "Claire clearly pulled it together and kept it together in the second set. She looked like a completely different tennis player."
Although Lynch had seemed to have settled into a specific lineup for the 2013 season, freshman Caroline Wilson and freshman Allison Jenson were placed in the No. 3 doubles spot over the normal No. 3 paring.
"I really wanted to give my other very dedicated players match time," Lynch said.
Lynch said that since Bethany was a non-conference opponent, she wanted to give some other players a chance to gain match time in different lineup positions. No. 3 doubles won 8-0 in their set.
