LYNCHBURG, Va.- With rainy weather in the forecast, Randolph and St. Mary's of Maryland moved their match indoors at the Crosswhite Fitness Club on Friday. The change of venue didn't seem to bother the WildCats as they won 5-0.

Second and third doubles were a breeze for the 'Cats. Ashley Schmitz (Keswick, Va./Homeschool) and Savana Mata (Santa Barbara, Calif./San Marcos) won 8-0 on second doubles while Jordon Kirkpatrick (Lutz, Fla./Sunlake) and Ranita Opoku-Sarfo (Stafford, Va./Brooke Point) also were 8-0 winners at third doubles. Keyu Jin (Kunming, China/No. 8 Middle School) and Lauren Appel (Severna Park, Md./Severna Park) teamed up at first doubles and came away with an 8-3 victory.

Jin was a winner at first singles as she handled Claire Bodin 8-1 as the two played a pro set. Schmitz won by the same score over Marianne Hersey in second singles.

Randolph next travels to Hilton Head, S.C. for Spring Break. The WildCats play Wilkes and Milligan on Sunday.
