The Lady Vols started the 2013 tennis campaign off with a solid first day performance at the UVA Winter Invite in Charlottesville, Virginia, a hidden dual with the University of Virginia that won't count toward team records.
Taking four of six singles matches and two of three doubles matches, co-head coach Mike Patrick was pleased with the team's start.
"We played some good doubles, especially at one and two and all the girls got some good singles matches," Patrick said.
Brynn Boren, Caitlyn Williams, Mimi Fotopoulos, and Tiffany Tavares won their singles matchups, while Boren and Kata Szekely and Williams and Joanna Henderson picked up the two doubles victories.
Track: The Virginia Tech Invitational in Blacksburg closed with two victories for the Lady Vols and four wins for the men's side.
Freshman Chelsea Blaase won the women's 5000m in 18:34.05 and fellow freshman Cassie Wertman took first in the shot put with a throw of 50 feet 2 1/2 inches.
The men's 4x400 team took its second victory of the season in 3:15.14. The distance medley relay clocked in at 10:07.83 for its second win in as many weeks.
Junior Terrence Livingston won the 500m in 1:03.65. Sophomore Jamol James had the only men's field win with a jump of 24 feet 2 1/2 inches in the long jump.
