BEXLEY, Ohio –  The Capital University women's tennis team had a busy Saturday after it hosted Mount Vernon Nazarene University and The College of Wooster at the Wolfe Park Tennis Courts. Capital endured a pair of 9-0 losses to drop their overall record to 1-2 this season.



Capital and Mount Vernon Nazarene kicked off a long day of tennis at Wolfe Park and the first doubles matches were competitive, however, all three went the Cougars' way. Madison Watt paired up with Aubrey Pletcher and lost a tough 8-6 decision, followed by an 8-5 loss taken by Julia Holt and Emma Price at two doubles.

Down 3-0 after doubles, Watt and freshman Addison Hasselbach gave the best fights after both lost their respective singles matches 6-2, 7-6. Mount Vernon Nazarene won all six singles matches to complete the 9-0 sweep.

After MVNU and Wooster played a match to give Capital a break, the Crusaders returned to the court for a match that began in the late afternoon. Despite the break, their fortunes remained the same. Capital defaulted three courts to give the Fighting Scots an advantage. Wooster took wins on all courts to finish off Capital, 9-0.
