LEBANON, Tenn.-- Cumberland women's tennis gets the 7-0 sweep over Missouri Baptist Thursday at the Tommy Gray Memorial Courts.

The Phoenix swept the doubles action as Ksenija Dmitrovic and Joana Bou defeated Faith Griese and Maria Brandt 6-4 and Marcela Cordeiro and Ana Maria Collazos defeated Hannah Chaney and Genna Novelly. The Spartans forfeited the third match as they only brought five players.

At No. 1, Collazos had the toughest match of the day but came out on top in the third set 10-8. Cordeiro topped the Spartans No. 2 Hannah Chaney 6-4, 6-2. Dmitrovic made quick work of Maria Brandt 6-2, 6-1.

At No. 4, Carly Earnhardt defeated Genna Novelly 6-2, 6-2 and Alexandra Leisibach swept Missouri Baptist's No. 5 Madison Feick 6-0, 6-0.
