The Ashland University tennis team opened the 2011 season on Friday (Sept. 2) with a 6-3 triumph over Tiffin at the AU Tennis Courts.
The Eagles received singles victories from Erika Sullivan (Broadview Heights, Ohio/Brecksville-Broadview Heights), Zdenka Pozo (Cochahamba, Bolivia/Cochahamba Cooperative), Kira Kotova (Moscow, Russia/#1535) and Sally Trout (Laura, Ohio/Milton-Union).
Ashland claimed two of the three doubles matches. Wins there went to the tandem of Sullivan-Pozo and the duo of Kotova-Trout.
This opening weekend of the season will test the Eagles' endurance. On Saturday, AU will host Findlay. Sunday, Ashland welcomes Wayne State to town.
