KNOXVILLE - In its final SEC match of the regular season, the University of Tennessee women's tennis team fell 4-0 to Alabama Sunday afternoon.
Alabama jumped out to a 1-0 lead after clinching the doubles point and never looked back en route to the 4-0 victory.
With the win, Alabama improves to 20-3 on the season and 12-1 in conference play securing the SEC Regular Season Title. The Lady Vols fall to 12-11 on the year and 6-7 in conference play.
Brittany Lindl and Victoria Olivarez fell 8-2 on court two to start the day off. On Senior Day, the Lady Vols honored senior Kayla McMurry between doubles and singles Sunday. McMurry, who had been battling injury all season long, took to the courts for the first time in 2014 alongside Ambika Pande at No. 3 doubles. The duo went back and forth with Alabama before the Crimson Tide pulled away for an 8-5 win to clinch the doubles point.
Heading to singles action, the Lady Vols singles lineup featured a freshman at each position. Alabama went on to capture a 6-1, 6-0 win on court six, a 6-0, 6-1 win on court two and a 6-1, 6-3 win on court three to earn the victory.
The Lady Vols are back in action later Sunday when they take on Middle Tennessee at 5 p.m. in the 2014 regular season finale.
