TROY, Ala. – The Troy women’s tennis team snapped its losing skid with a 6-1 win over Jackson State in the Trojans’ home opener at the Lunsford Tennis Complex on Saturday.

Jackson State (0-7) got its lone point at No. 4 singles where Troy’s Monica Gonzalez was forced to retire just three games into the match. Troy went on to win the remaining five singles matches, all in straight sets.

Huynh got the first result with a 6-1, 6-0 win at No. 2 singles. Cosovic picked up a 6-0, 6-1 win at No. 3 to give Troy a 3-1 lead in the match. Dorofeeva clinched the win with a 6-1, 6-2 triumph at No. 1 singles.
