WTEN Preview: Bucs Close Regular Season by Hosting Winthrop

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Charleston Southern hosts Winthrop on Wednesday afternoon in the regular season finale for both teams.

The Bucs (8-9, 5-3 Big South) return to conference play having won their last two Big South games in a row. CSU looked strong in both wins on their road trip to Radford and Longwood. They swept the doubles in each match and only lost one singles match between the two wins.

With one match remaining before the Big South Championship, the Bucs have fared well against conference opponents in recent matches. Madalina Man has won five conference matches in a row and eight of her last ten. Filippa Ericson, Kimberley Koerner, Tiffany Pyritz, and Michelle Schmitz have each won seven of their last ten matches in conference play. Man has just one loss in conference play while Ericson and Pyritz are 6-2.

In doubles play, the senior pair of Ericson and Koerner had led the way for the Bucs so far. The duo is 6-2 in Big South play and 4-1 at the No. 3 spot.

Winthrop has clinched the No. 1 seed in next week's Big South Conference Championship. The Eagles are undefeated in Big South play and hold a 12-7 overall record. Their top two singles players, Lauren Proctor and Alisa Soloveva, have won 16 and 17 matches respectively.

First serve is set for 2pm on Wednesday at the Buccaneer Tennis Complex and live results will be available at csusports.com.
