Norfolk, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's women tennis team closed the finest season in program history Sunday with a 5-0 loss to Washington and Lee in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference championship at Old Dominon University's Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center.

The Hornets finish the season with a best-ever 18-3 record and reached the championship round of the ODAC tournament for the first time in program history.

Lynchburg made things interesting at the No. 1 doubles slot, as junior Christina Harris (Falls Church, Va.) and sophomore Caroline Guill (Louisa, Va.) fought to an 8-4 defeat against Valerie Marshall and Lily Horsley.

At No. 2, seniors Sarah Wyly (Leesburg, Va.) and Lilli Altenburg (Lexington, Va.) fell, 8-3, while the third-flight duo, senior Reagan Coon (Churchville, Va.) and freshman Alissa Anderson (Norfolk, Va.) lost, 8-0.

W&L took care of business at the second and third singles flights to seal their 23rd consecutive ODAC women's tennis title.

Lynchburg finishes the season with several milestones. The Hornets' 18 dual-match wins are the most in program history, crushing the previous mark of 13. Harris set a new career singles wins mark at 64, and Coon wrapped up a perfect dual-match season with a 15-0 singles record.
