CARROLLTON, Ga. - Fresh off of the first win of the 2018 season, the West Georgia tennis team and head coach Michael Coleman will have several changes in the upcoming weekend schedule, as weather predicted to hit Carrollton in the afternoon on Saturday has forced a change.
The Wolves were originally scheduled to take on North Alabama in Gulf South Conference action on Friday at 4 p.m., with a 1 p.m. match with Georgia Southwestern scheduled for Saturday. Coleman and North Alabama moved Friday's time to 2 p.m. to better accommodate the needs of both teams, while Saturday's match with GSW has been postponed until a later date.
West Georgia comes into Friday's match with North Alabama with a 1-7 record overall on the year, and the Wolves are on the hunt for their first conference win of the season. Injuries have played a major role thus far this season, as Coleman's regular lineup has been available in just four of West Georgia's eight matches this spring.
The first win of the year came on Wednesday, with the Wolves sweeping the day from top to bottom. Freshman Brooke Kane was the big winner, taking home her first collegiate victories on the afternoon. Senior Gabby Chanthaphaeng moved closer to the career doubles wins record, as she now has 24 victories, just two away from tying Sierra Brown's career record of 26, set last season.
