Andrews recorded wins at both first singles and first doubles in the Quakers’ first two conference wins of the year last weekend. She downed Lynchburg College’s Melissa Drinkard, 6-2, 6-2, in Guilford’s 7-2 win over the Hornets Saturday. Andrews teamed with classmate Allison Hewitt for an 8-1 win over Drinkard and Catherine So in the first doubles match. The following day Andrews and Hewitt knocked off Virginia Wesleyan College’s top tandem of Mia Proctor and Jackie Lee, 8-3. Andrews stopped Proctor, 6-3, 6-4, at first singles. Guilford claimed a 6-3 victory over the Marlins.
Andrews shares the team lead with four singles wins this season and has a 4-4 first-singles record. Guilford is 4-0 this year when Andrews wins at first singles. She and Hewitt are 5-3 in doubles matches, which also equals Guilford’s best total.
