WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The No. 12 Virginia women’s tennis team completed a sweep of a two-match weekend road-trip with a 6-1 win Sunday over Wake Forest at the Wake Forest Tennis Center.

Virginia opened the match by sweeping all three doubles matches to take a 1-0 lead. Caryssa Peretz (Cherry Hill, N.J.) and Maria Fuccillo (Rockville, Md.) opened the match with an 8-2 win at No. 3 over Brigita Bercyte and Catherine Roach. At the No. 2 spot, Emily Fraser (Rye, N.Y.) and Lindsey Hardenbergh (Fairfax Station, Va.) topped Rebecca Siegler and Karen Forman 8-5 to clinch the opening point. Hana Tomljanovic (Boca Raton, Fla.) and Erin Vierra (Norwell, Mass.) completed the sweep with an 8-5 win at No. 1 over Kayla Duncan and Ryann Cutillo.
In singles, the Demon Deacons tied the match at 1-1 as Vierra retired from her match at No. 3 against Siegler. Molly O’Koniewski (Hilton Head Island, S.C.) gave Virginia the lead, 2-1, as she didn’t lose a game in her win at No. 6 over Roach.
