Greensboro, N.C. - Gardner-Webb women's tennis was unable to make it three wins in a row Tuesday, dropping a road match at the hands of UNC Greensboro by a 5-2 margin.

The loss moves GWU to an even 3-3 on the season.

Hopkins earned a hard-fought win for the Runnin' Bulldogs at the No. 2 singles position as well, taking down Yurkuran 6-7(7), 7-5, 10-6. The freshman from Birmingham, England has won the three straight at No. 2 and is 5-1 overall in singles competition this season.
