No. 2 Emory edges No. 7 Bowdoin 5-4

  Emory has won its past five matches against top-11 teams in Division III.

BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Emory edged seventh-ranked Bowdoin 5-4 on Sunday morning to complete a sweep of three matches during the weekend against top-10 ranked opponents.

The Eagles improved to 18-2 with the win, the team's fifth in a row against an NCAA Division III opponent ranked 11th or higher. Emory is now 12-0 against Division III opposition this year, and 7-0 against nationally ranked Division III teams.

With the match moved indoors due to weather, the Eagles fell into an early deficit after doubles play. The Eagles received their one doubles victory from the first team of Gabrielle Clark and Michelle Satterfield, who defeated Emma Lewis and Joulia Likhanskaia 8-5. However, sophomore Beatrice Rosen and freshman Katarina Su fell at second doubles 8-5 and senior Brenna Kelly and freshman Melissa Goodman were defeated 8-6 at third doubles.

The Eagles bounced back with wins in four of the six singles contests. Clark completed her perfect weekend with a 6-1, 7-6 (3) win against Tiffany Cheng at first singles, while Rosen registered a 6-2, 7-5 victory at second singles. Goodman was perfect in her fourth singles match, winning 6-0, 6-0, while Su claimed her 19th consecutive singles win with a 6-3, 6-0 victory at sixth singles.

Emory's only two singles losses were each three-set defeats, with Satterfield falling 3-6, 6-2, 7-6 (5) at third singles, and sophomore Madison Gordon dropping a 6-4, 3-6, 12-10 decision at fifth singles.

Clark now stands at 101-31 for her career in doubles matches, and is four victories shy of the school career record. She also earned her 94th career singles win in Sunday's match, and is six singles wins short of becoming the second player in the program's history to reach the century mark.

Bowdoin dropped to 10-4 on the campaign with the loss.
