FSU Secures Saturday Sweep

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.– The Florida State women’s tennis team (9-6, 2-3 ACC) swept both UAB and Alabama A&M 5-0 at the Hoover Metropolitan Complex on Saturday.

“It was a great day, we battled two feisty teams in some really challenging weather conditions,” head coach Jen Hyde said. “We have a lot of people in our lineup who can play ball, and they did today. This trip was a great way and opportunity to get us ready for some more ACC play coming up.”

The Seminoles came out hot when Kristyna Lavickova and Ellie Schoppe won 6-2 at No. 3 doubles. Vic Allen and Olympe Lancelot captured a 6-2 victory at No. 2 to clinch the doubles point. Anna Arkadianou and Millie Bissett were tied 4-4 at No. 1 doubles before the doubles point was clinched.

Florida State continued its dominance in singles when Bissett won 6-2, 6-3 at No. 5 singles to extend the lead. Schoppe followed with a 6-1, 7-6 (3) win at No. 3 singles.

Senior Vic Allen clinched the team victory with a 6-2, 3-6, 6-1 win at No. 2 singles. Mila Saric finished her match and won 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 at No. 4 singles. Both Arkadianou and Alice Amendola’s matches went unfinished.

Against Alabama A&M, the Seminoles continued their dominance in doubles. Freshmen Lavickova and Bissett kicked off the match with a 6-0 sweep at No. 2 doubles. Arkadianou and Schoppe clinched the doubles point with a 6-2 win at No. 1. Saric and Amendola were up 5-2 at No. 3 before the doubles point was clinched.

Amendola started singles with a 6-1, 6-0 win at No. 6 singles. Schoppe then won 6-0, 6-0 to take an early 3-0 lead. Lavickova clinched the team win with a 6-3, 6-0 win at No. 4.
