GREENSBORO (January 27, 2018) – The North Carolina A&T women’s tennis team lost to Wofford on Saturday, 6-1 at the Aggie Tennis Complex. The Aggies scored through winning the doubles point for the first time this season by winning two out of the three scheduled doubles matches.

“The women’s identification is coming in as a team who is willing to have grit throughout the match,” said coach William Crutchfield.

Winning the doubles point against such a tough team was a huge accomplishment for the Aggies as they took the No. 2 and 3 doubles matches. In the No. 2 spot, it was a pair of seniors in Khalia Powell and Nadia Hilton-Adams that secured the point for the Aggies as they defeated Curran Carver and Brittany Wilbur 7-5. Junior Angelica Martinez and sophomore Kanishka Chawla got the first doubles win at No. 3 doubles by defeating Lauren Reid and Samantha Russell 6-4.

Even though the Aggies were not able to come away with a singles win they came close with one match going into a third set. Two others went into four sets. After losing the first set 6-0, Chawla battled back and won the second set 7-6 after winning the tiebreaker 10-6. She lost the last set 6-4.

“I am so proud of Chawla in being able to come back from being down in the last set 5-1, 30-love. She fought her way back to within two points of tying the score at 5-all,” said Crutchfield.

Martinez took her first set 7-6 after winning the tiebreaker. She then came up short losing the next two sets 6-3, 6-1 and falling to Reid in the No. 4 singles spot. In the No. 5 spot, it was Hilton-Adam going into three sets before being defeated by Wilbur 6-3, 5-7, 6-3.
