BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The UAB women’s tennis team battled through the rain at George Ward Park on Friday to pick up a 6-0 win over Southern.
UAB improves to 9-6 overall on the season and snaps a three-match skid, while the Jaguars fall to 5-8 overall this year.
“I am happy with the focus we had after having to wait for the rain to move through,” UAB head coach Lisa Jackson said. “I look forward to seeing them compete at a high level once again on Sunday.”
Fernandez led off with a 6-1, 6-0 win over Southern’s Demtria Woods at No.1, while Daniell ousted Gabriella Moore, 6-0, 6-0, at the second court.
At the fifth position, Moolman ran past Laura Syori, 6-0, 6-4, before Simon took a 6-3, 6-2 triumph over the Jaguars’ Cameron Davis.
