Goucher Goes 0-3 in Doubles Play for First Time in 2010-11

TOWSON, Md. — Goucher resumed its season today by bowing to Southern Virginia, 9-0.

After dropping the first set at No. 1 singles, Joan Pulupa (Gaithersburg, Md./Richard Montgomery) took the second set from Rachel Reid only to have Reid pull out a 6-4, 2-6, 1-0 (10-3) win.

Mara Bergman (Summit, N.J./Summit), who was off to a 6-1 start in singles play this season, won the first set of her match against Bethany Johnson at No. 3 only to suffer a 6-7 (4), 6-4, 1-0 (8-6) setback.

Addie Maxwell (Southwest Harbor, Maine/Mount Desert Island) also dropped just her second singles match of the season today as she was beaten by Jaclyn Arrington 6-1, 6-2 at No. 4.

The Knights (7-0) became the first team this season to take all three doubles matches from the Gophers. At No. 1, Reid and Johnson were 8-4 winners over Pulupa and Meaghan Lee (Potomac, Md./Winston Churchill).
