Women’s Tennis Sweeps Arkansas State, 4-0, on Senior Day

Ragin’ Cajuns claim sixth home victory of the year in regular-season finale

WTEN Seniors

LAFAYETTE — Louisiana Women's Tennis wrapped up the 2020-21 regular season in style, notching an exciting 4-0 sweep over Arkansas State at Cajun Courts. 
 
Saturday's victory saw the Ragin' Cajuns finish the year with an impressive 6-1 record at home for the second-straight season.
 
Unlike the previous meeting between the two teams earlier this week, Louisiana took the doubles point with two matches that required a tiebreaker. 
 
Lucie Raquin and Dana Radovanovic did their part on Court 3, toppling A-State's Nejla Zukic and Yasmine Humbert, 7-6 (7-4).
 
The point came down to another tight match, but Floriane Picaut and Clara Mantaux were up to the task as the tandem inched past Thea Rice and Hunter Roper, 7-6 (8-6).
 
Radovanovic was first off the court in singles play, claiming a 6-0, 6-1 decision over Amelia Guevremont. She was quickly joined by senior Christina Jordan, who defeated Jill Morse, 6-3, 6-0, to put the Cajuns up 3-0 in the match. 
 
With the top three courts already in the third set, Isabella Kierkegaard locked in and picked up a 6-2, 6-4 win over the Red Wolves' Nejla Zukic to clinch the team's second conference sweep of the year.
 
Louisiana will now turn its focus to the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, which is slated to begin on Thursday, April 15, in Peachtree, Georgia. More information on the league tournament can be found here.
