Mobile, Ala. – Behind several efficient performances in both singles and doubles, No. 11-ranked Shorter College breezed to a 9-0 victory over Bethel College (Kan.) in the first round of the 2010 Women’s Tennis National Championship at the Mobile Tennis Center in Mobile, Ala.

The Lady Hawks (18-6) advance to Round of 16 where they will square off with seventh-ranked Azusa Pacific University at 9 a.m. CDT on Wednesday.

Shorter earned three key points by sweeping the doubles competition and never looked back.

The duo of Michaela Tingets and Danielle Monteith topped Bethel’s pairing of Katie Malotte and Rachael Bachman at No. 1 doubles by a count of 8-6.

Coralie Fayard and Emmanuelle Beaucoudrey cruised to an 8-2 victory over Bethel’s Maya Kehr and Allison Kaster at No. 2 doubles and Nienke van Staveren and Carolina Brigneti closed out the doubles sweep with an 8-5 win over Miranda Weaver and Shayne Runnion at No. 3.

Beaucoudrey topped Malotte, 6-2, 6-0, at No. 1 singles while Tingets (6-1, 6-2), Fayard (6-1, 6-1) and Brigneti (6-2, 6-1) dropped no more than three games in victories at No. 2, No. 3 and No. 6 singles, respectively.

Azusa Pacific has never won a national title, but is in the national tournament for the 11th time in school history after securing an at-large bid with a 13-7 record.

Shorter is making its first appearance in the championships since 2007 and its ninth overall.
