CLEMSON, SC — With temperatures in the low 70s, the Clemson women’s tennis team traveled away for a match for the first time in 2022, eliminating College of Charleston, 5-2, on Saturday after noon at the Duckworth Family Tennis Complex. Clemson improved to 6-1 in the young season and 29-1 all-time against the Cougars, who fell to 1-2 that year.

Clemson is now 6-0 in home games this year. The Tigers took the doubles point with a 6-0 win over Eleni Louka and Jenna Thompson on court two and a 6-1 win over Ali DeSpain and Samantha Buyckz on court three.
