No. 12 Lions Roll Past Southeastern (Fla.), 9-0

SAINT LEO, Fla. – In much the same way it started the season on Friday, the No. 12 Saint Leo women's tennis team took care of business in their second match of the season as they swept aside Southeastern (Fla.), 9-0 in opening weekend action from the Saint Leo Tennis Center.

It was a dominating effort as the Lions (2-0) only dropped a total of six sets to the visiting Fire (0-2).   In doubles action, the Lions dropped just two points at no. 1 and one at no. 3 while handing the no. 2 double opponent a straight-sets defeat.

Today's victory, accompanied by yesterday's win over St. Thomas, see the Lions not having surrendered a team point in consecutive sweeps.

Saint Leo will have nearly a week to prepare for its next competition when they travel to Savannah, Ga. and take on Georgia College on Saturday, February 9.
