WESSON – The Copiah-Lincoln Community College Lady Wolves fell to 4-4 on the season Wednesday after a 6-3 loss to Jones County Junior College.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the women’s team for the steady improvement they are making,” said Lady Wolves’ head coach Blake Smith. “We played Jones at their place just 3 weeks ago and lost 8-1 and several courts weren’t even close…this match was totally different.” Co-Lin is back in action Monday, April 3 as the Lady Wolves travel to Raymond to take on the Hinds Lady Eagles.

Co-Lin’s No. 1 doubles team, Ximena Daza and Laura Vargas, picked up a tough win after defeating Beth Owen and Anastaysia Buchkanova 9-8 (5). Susanna Ratcliff and Bayli Battle paired up for the Lady Wolves at No. 2. The duo fell to Mattie Mills and Kaylee McLaurin 8-2. Chantel Quarles and Maddie Ogden lost a tough match at No. 3 to JCJC’s April Rudolph and August Parker. The final score was 9-7.

Daza got a big win at No. 1 singles for Co-Lin after coasting through Owen 6-1, 6-2. Buchkanova edged out Co-Lin’s Vargas in a difficult match at No. 2. Vargas lost 4-6, 6-3, 10-3. Quarles got a victory for the Lady Wolves at No. 3 singles after a 6-3, 6-2 match against Brooke Cran. At No. 4 singles Ratcliff lost 6-2, 6-0 to McLaurin. Battle played the No. 5 slot for the Lady Wolves, but fell to JCJC’s Mills 6-4, 6-4. Ogden rounded out singles action at No. 6 for Co-Lin. Ogden fell to Parker in heartbreaking 3-6, 6-2, 10-5 match.

“We were just a few points here and there from pulling off a big upset…this is a big confidence booster for us,” said Smith. “The ladies are realizing the progress they are making and are starting to peak at just the right time with the state tournament just three weeks away.”
