MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- An 8-6 doubles victory by Jade Curtis and Tiffany William at the top doubles position gave the No. 3 Auburn Montgomery women’s tennis team the momentum in the match and the lead for good, as the underdog Warhawks defeated the NAIA’s top team Brenau 6-3 Tuesday at the AUM Tennis Complex.

The Warhawks improved to 10-7 on the season and 4-0 in Southern States Athletic Conference play. The Golden Tigers fell to 9-3 on the season and 1-1 in league play.

Despite taking two of the first three games in their doubles match, the duo of Chanel Cunningham and Maria Fernanda Vargas fell 8-2 at the No. 2 doubles position to put AUM in an early 1-0 hole.

However, Morgane Zowczak and Hagar Caro held off Vladica Djurdjevic and Stephanie Moniz at the third spot to even the match at 1-1.

Curtis and William outlasted Eline Nagels and Maria Perdomo Medina at the top position to give the Warhawks the 2-1 lead after doubles play.

AUM upped its advantage to 3-1 when Cunningham defeated Medina, the NAIA’s 24th-ranked singles player, 6-3, 6-0.

William forced match point with a 6-1, 6-0 win at the second position, before Curtis cruised past the third-ranked Dominika Jasova.

Zowczak provided the final point with a 7-5, 7-5, win at the No. 5 position over Nagels, her first match March 4. Caro took an early advantage in the first set at the No. 6 position, but rolled her ankle in early in set two and eventually fell 3-6, 6-0, 1-0 (10-3). Vargas slipped in the fourth flight, 6-4, 6-1.

AUM will return to action on Friday, April 12, when they take on Abilene Christian in Pensacola, Fla. The match is slated to begin at 11 a.m.
