Women fall to Stetson

The Jacksonville University women’s tennis team was swept 7-0 by Stetson Thursday in Deland, Florida.  This marked the third time that the Dolphins have failed to register a team point in a match this season.

All of the individual matches were decided in straight sets except for one.  JU’s Natalia Melibeu won the first set of her match, but then dropped the next two to lose.  She was defeated by Stetson’s Shannon Gunning 2-6, 7-5, 1-0.  Melibeu is now 5-9 on the year.

Freshman #1 Aline Staudt lost her match 4-6, 3-6 to fall to 1-3 in conference play and 9-5 overall.  Staudt had a stellar start to her JU career winning her first six matches and seven out of her first eight. 

JU falls to 1-3 in Atlantic Sun play with the loss.  The team will look to rebound against Florida Gulf Coast on March 31 in Fort Myers, Florida.
