NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - The North Carolina A&T women's tennis team turned a competitive performance against Norfolk State at the Centre Court Racquet Club on Saturday afternoon, but the Aggies were swept by the Spartans to open up conference play.

Junior Kimberly Stalling who volunteered for the No. 1 singles spot to replace injured sophomore Kenya Colbert, turned in a strong battle before falling 6-4, 6-5 to Andrea Macchiavello.  Freshman Jayla Scott also went the distance against Mafalda Lhorca in the No. 4 singles position.  After falling behind 6-2 in the first set, she competed to a 15-13 tie breaker in a 7-6 second set. 

Senior Nianna Henry lost a close first set 7-5, before dropping the second set to Laura Gutierrez 6-2.  April Burrage lost 6-4, 6-2 to Kia Batiste in the No. 6 singles match. 

Scott and Burrage worked Kia Batiste and Rebecca Graff to a 5-5 tie in the No. 3 doubles match, but the rest of that match was not played since Norfolk State (2-1) won the other two games and the doubles point.

The Aggies will next compete at Fayetteville State on Feb. 8 at 1 p.m.
