Yellow Jackets Outlast Vixens

SWEET BRIAR, Va. --- Sweet Briar hosted their third Old Dominion Athletic Conference contest in as many days as Randolph-Macon came into town. However, the Vixens lost the match 8-1.

The Vixens were unable to earn any points in doubles competition, but it wasn't without hard effort. Caitlin Delmas (Asheville, N.C. / K-12 International Academy) and Glory Bowman (Roanoke Va. / Patrick Henry) played a competitive match but came up short, 8-5. 
 
Heading into her match, Delmas had a nine-match winning streak in singles competition. She was able to keep the streak alive and bring her total to ten when her opponent retired after three games into the first set.
 

SBC's overall record is now 5-10 and 3-6 in the ODAC. Sweet Briar travels to Shenandoah on Thursday, April 10.  The ODAC match is set to begin at 4:30 p.m.

Also this week the NCAA sponsored Division III Week takes place. SBC along with DIII colleges and universities across the country are celebrating the student-athlete experience.  Learn more about Why D3 here.
