EAST GREENSBORO  – The North Carolina A&T women’s tennis team fell to 0-12 after losing their doubleheader matches against Longwood and East Carolina.

The first match against Longwood was a close match with N.C. A&T only one point away from winning their first match of the season. They fell to Longwood 4-3.

It started off with Fabiana Ramirez and Angelica Martinez winning at the No. 1 doubles position. The match went into a tiebreaker set with the Aggies senior duo coming out on top (11-9) to give them the 7-6 win. Longwood took the doubles point, however, by taking No. 2 and 3 doubles matches.

Both Ramirez and Martinez went on to also grab wins in singles as well. Ramirez defeated Marija Venta 6-0, 6-3 at No. 1 singles for her second singles win of the year. Martinez grabbed her first singles win of the season downing Yulia Almiron 6-4, 7-6 (7-5) at No. 2 singles.

Freshman Kaya Ellis captured her second singles win on the season at No. 6 singles. Ellis defeated Crystal Nzewi 6-2, 6-2.

In the second match of the day, N.C. A&T fell to ECU 5-0. The Ramirez/Martinez pair was having another great game, but the Pirates clinched the doubles point before they could finish the match. The score was tied at 3 when the match was halted.

The Pirates took four of the singles matches with No. 3 and 6 singles finishing almost simultaneously giving ECU the clinch.
