Spartans Fall to #22 Mary Washington in CAC Opener

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – The York College women's tennis team opened up their 2012 Capital Athletic Conference slate with a 9-0 loss to #22 Mary Washington Friday in Fredericksburg, Va. With the defeat, the Spartans drop to 1-4 (0-1 CAC) while the traditionally strong Eagles currently stand at 6-1 (3-0 CAC).

In third doubles, the tandem of Arcondia Vlahos and Nicole Olson snagged three games while the second-doubles team of Kacie Weatherhead and Megan McCullin won two.

York fell in each singles match in straight sets. However, freshman number two singles player Weatherhead, captured a pair of games in each set.

The Spartans return to action on Tuesday, March 20, when they travel to Penn State – Harrisburg for a 3:30 pm non-conference tilt.
