GREENVILLE, S.C. -- The Furman women's tennis team concluded the 2014 fall season this weekend at the Wildcat Fall Duals, held on the campus of Northwestern in Evanston, Ill. 

The round-robin format matched the Paladins versus Yale in Friday's singles action, then Furman squared off against DePaul on Saturday.  In Sunday's finale, Furman took on Princeton.  Sophomore Ansley Speaks came from behind for a 5-7, 6-1, 6-4 win over the Tigers' Alanna Wolff on Sunday to lead the Paladins in singles action over the weekend.

In doubles play, Furman senior Alex Moreno-Kaste teamed with Speaks to pick up two wins in the tournament.  The Paladin duo defeated Hanna Yu and Ree Ree Li of Yale, 6-4, 6-2, on Friday, then beat Northwestern's Rheeya Doshi and Lok Sze Leung, 8-7, on Saturday.  Sophomore Blair Martin and freshman Harper Caswell combined for an 8-3 victory over Emily Hahn and Alanna Wolff of Princeton on Sunday.

Furman will open the 2015 spring season on January 21 when the Paladins take on USC Upstate at the Mickel Tennis Center in Greenville, S.C.  First serve is set for 4 p.m.
