STOW, Ohio - - The No. 26th ranked Grand Valley State team was too much to handle for the Wilmington University women's tennis team on the final day of its trip to the Latuchie Tennis Center, falling 7-0, on Sunday morning.

The Lakers took all three doubles matches to star the contest, earning the doubles' point. They then took all six singles matches, despite a battle from Tess Paya at No. 4 singles.

After falling 6-0 in the first set, Paya fought back to win the second set in a tiebreaker, 7-2, to force a super set in the third. But Paya was unable to complete the comeback, falling in the third set, 10-4.

The Wildcats come back to Delaware and have one more game scheduled before the NCAA Division II East Region Tournament in May. The Wildcats will face off against Indiana (Pa.) next Saturday at the Delcastle Tennis Center. The program's first Senior Day will begin with a 10:30 a.m. first serve.
