Tide Women's Tennis Blanks Hogs
The win was also the Alabama's fourth-straight shutout, marking the first time in program history that UA has won four-consecutive sweeps in SEC play.
Alabama won its 12th double point of the season in Sunday's victory, getting wins on courts one and two. The Tide's top duo of Maya Jansen and Erin Routliffe, ranked 18th in the nation, were first to finish, beating out Kimberly-Ann Surin and Brittany Huxley, 8-3. Mary Anne Daines and Danielle Spielmann then secured the first point for Alabama, winning 8-5 over Sarah McLean and Shannon Hudson.
In singles, Routliffe's 6-2, 6-1 victory on court three over Surin gave the Tide a 2-0 lead overall. She was followed by Emily Zabor on court five, who won 6-3, 6-2, and Natalia Maynetto, who clinched with a 7-5, 6-1 victory on court six. Alabama also led in all three remaining matches that were suspended following Maynetto's win.
The Tide returns to action on Friday when it heads to Auburn to take on the Tigers at 5 p.m. CT.
