Furman Puts Winning Streak On The Line At Winthrop Saturday

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- The 43rd-ranked Furman women's tennis team will put its 12 match winning streak on the line Saturday when the Paladins travel to Rock Hill for a 1 p.m. contest at Winthrop.

The match marks the 28th meeting between the two teams.  Winthrop won last year's meeting, 4-3, in Greenville, but Furman leads the all-time series, 20-7. 

"This is going to be a really fun match for us," said Furman head coach Adam Herendeen.  "We have a lot of respect for Winthrop's program, and every year our match with them is always one of the toughest we play.  We have had a great week of preparation, and our girls are ready for a big test."

Furman holds a 15-1 overall record and 2-0 SoCon mark after defeating UNCG, 6-1, on Wednesday.  The Paladins are led by junior Katarina Kozarov, who ranks 50th nationally and holds an 11-2 record at flight one singles.  Freshman Madison Dillon is ranked 123rd national and boasts a 15-1 singles mark, while senior Katty Weymouth and sophomore Carol Elizabeth Kerman are each 9-2 in singles.  In doubles play, Adams and Kozarov hold an 9-1 record at flight one, and Dillon has teamed with senior Katty Weymouth for a 9-1 mark.

Winthrop is 8-3 overall and 4-0 in the Big South.  The Eagles hold a four-match winning streak after defeating Campbell, 5-2, on Saturday.
