Hokies down Marshall, 6-1

Virginia Tech 6

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – The Virginia Tech women’s tennis team downed Marshall 6-1 on Friday afternoon at the Huntington Tennis Club.

Tech (4-0) won the doubles point with Caroline Daxhelet and Natalie Novotna pairing up on court one to defeat Stephanie and Anna Smith 6-1. Marshall (0-5) did not field a team on court three, so the Hokies secured that match to win the point.

The Hokies opened singles with a 2-0 lead with the Herd forfeiting on court six against Tech’s Nina Sorkin. Tech’s Elena Cerezo-Codina pushed the Hokies to a 3-0 advantage with a win at three, defeating Marija Bogicevic 6-2, 6-4.

Marshall got on the board with a win at one, but the Hokies secured the match as Katherine Butler knocked off Ana Marhuenda at five, 7-6, 6-3.

Tech wrapped up the match with Nika Kozar’s 7-6, 7-5 win at four over Anna Smith and Daxhelet defeating Maddie Silver 7-6, 6-2 on two.

The Hokies will return to the court on Saturday, Feb. 17 hosting a doubleheader against Liberty and Radford.
