CLEMSON, S.C. - Despite an hour-and-a-half rain delay forcing the match indoors, the 13th-seeded Clemson women’s tennis team downed UNCW, 4-0, in the NCAA Team Championship First Round on Friday at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center. The win marks the 13th consecutive season that Clemson has advanced past the First Round. The Tigers will take on No. 29 Auburn on Saturday in the Second Round at 1 p.m. 

Clemson claimed the doubles points for the 22nd time in 27 matches to get scoring started, and claimed three straight-set singles wins in order to advance. Beatrice Gumulya (6-0, 6-1), Yana Koroleva (6-2, 6-2), and Tristen Dewar (6-1, 6-3) all won after the match was forced indoors. They had each claimed their first sets prior to the move. 

Koroleva and Yuilynn Miao are headed over to Littlejohn Coliseum immediately following the match, where they will walk in Friday's 6:30 p.m. commencement ceremony.

In earlier action, Auburn defeated Winthrop, 4-1, by winning the doubles point and taking singles wins on courts one, two and six.
