The Maryville College Women's Tennis squad rolled to an 8-1 victory on Saturday afternoon, as they topped Ohio Christian University at Tyson Tennis Center in Knoxville, Tenn.

The win marks the second for the Scots this season – one which spans over the fall and spring semesters.

The Scots began early, sweeping doubles competition. Anastasia Dunn and Kayla Zimmerman took an 8-1 victory in the top-seeded doubles competition, before McKennah Francis and Carter Dickinson won 8-3 in their doubles match. Anna Katherine Harris and Joyce Coling completed the sweep with an 8-2 victory.

Francis took a top-seed victory over Drayah Johnston in two sets, as Zimmerman matched her with a 7-5 win in set one and a 6-2 victory in the second. Dickinson won in three sets, after fighting off a 7-5 loss in the first, as Dunn swept Kaylee Dickson, 6-2, 6-1. Coling earned a two-set sweep in the sixth-seed, as Harris fell in a tough three-set match against Chelsi Mason.

Maryville College will look to carry today's victory into tomorrow, as they open USA South play. The Scots will face LaGrange College at 9:30 a.m. The match – due to the weather forecast – will be played indoors at the Cedar Bluff Racquet Club in Knoxville, Tenn.
