The Army West Point Women’s Tennis team extended its winning streak to seven on Saturday at the Lichtenberg Tennis Center, as the Black Knights took down rival Navy, 5-2, to earn a star in the Army-Navy Star Series, presented by USAA.
The dual began with a back-and-forth affair for the opening doubles point. Stephanie Dolehide and Caroline Vincent cruised to a 6-2 win at No. 1 to set the tempo. After dropping a tiebreaker at No. 2, Sasha Inchauste and Hannah Boubel rallied for a 7-6 (4) tiebreak win of their own at No. 3 to give Army the early 1-0 team lead.
The Black Knights carried that momentum into singles action, as the Cadets jumped out to three victories by straight sets. Ana Joyner earned Army's second team point with a 6-2, 6-3 win at No. 1. Paola Bou would follow suit, winning 6-3, 6-3 at No. 4.
The clincher would come at No. 2, with Dolehide storming to a 6-2, 6-4 victory to give Army the Star. After wins by Navy on courts five and six, Vincent would give the Black Knights their fifth point with a three-set win at No. 3.
Army will remain at home, as the Black Knights welcome Bucknell to the Malek Tennis Center on Friday, April 9 for a Patriot League dual at 1pm. Read more.
