WINCHESTER, Va. – Visiting Greensboro College swept Shenandoah University in a pair of USA South Conference tennis matches Sunday afternoon.

The Greensboro men (3-8, 1-3 USA South) made quick work of the SU men with an 8-1 victory, but the women’s match was
much closer.

With the match tied at 4-4, the team result came down to the No. 4 singles match between Brittney Grimaldi and Katie Allegro.

The Hornets’ Grimaldi took the first set 7-6 (7-3) before Allegro answered with a 6-4 win in the second. The two women then battled back and fourth in the third with Grimaldi eventually serving for the set at 5-4.

Allegro broke Grimaldi at 30 to tie it at 5-5 and then held serve to lead 6-5 with Grimaldi back on serve.

Grimaldi sent it to a tie-breaker by winning at 15, but could not close out the match. Allegro won the first two points of the tie-breaker and held a 4-2 by the changeover.

The match was then delayed 10 minutes as Grimaldi injured her wrist when she crashed into the fence returning an Allegro lob. Following the injury time-out, Allegro won three of the final six points, including the final one on a forehand winner to clinch the match.

Greensboro improves to 3-6, 3-2 with the win while SU falls to 4-5, 2-2.

The Hornet men (2-7, 0-3) had their victory at No. 3 singles where Paul Froeschle defeated Tim Layson 7-4, 7-6 (7-3).
