LEBANON, Tenn.--Cumberland women's tennis bounces back after a loss to Campbellsville yesterday with a big 6-1 win at home over Georgetown College. 

Doubles play came down to the wire as Jessica Hernandez and Maria Arbelaez picked up the first match at No. 2 with a 6-2 win over Maci Ferguson and Michaela Montori. Georgetown's No. 3 doubles team, Ana Forero and Michaela Montori, defeated Alexandra Leisibach and Lara Zugatsi 6-4 to even things up. 

Kaede Hatano and Elina Sungatullina held on to defeat Emma Hill and Samantha Spady 7-5 for a huge win to take the all-important doubles point. 

Cumberland rode that momentum into the singles matches winning five of the six matches handily. Jessica Hernandez won at No. 1 6-3, 6-4 over Maci Ferguson. Sungatullina topped Montori at No. 2 6-4, 6-2 and Arbelaez defeated Lydia Prince 6-1, 6-2.
