COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Things couldn’t get much easier for Columbus State in the opening round of the NCAA Women’s Tennis Tournament, as they swept Mount Olive 5-0 to head on to the next round.

The top-seeded Cougars were barely challenged as they cruised to victory.

They swept the doubles matches, with their #1 team of Beatriz Leon and Beatriz Lopez winning 8-3 in what would be the closest match in doubles competition.

The teams of Camila Tobar/Kirsa Utech and Giorgia Vitale/Rachael Williams blanked their opponents 8-0, 8-0 to give CSU the doubles sweep.

In singles, they were just as impressive, as they only needed two matches to clinch the victory.

Beatriz Lopez and Camila Tobar both dominated their respective opponents, only giving up one game between the two. Lopez topped Alejandra Hernandez 6-0, 6-0 while Tobar took it to Areej Fareh 6-0, 6-1.

Up next the Cougars face Francis Marion in the 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament Tuesday afternoon at 1 p.m. A victory would send them to the National Finals.
