GREENSBORO, N.C. – Visiting Randolph-Macon College remained perfect in 2017 with a 9-0 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) women's tennis victory at Guilford College Saturday. The yellow Jackets (5-0, 3-0 ODAC) captured all three doubles contests and won five of six singles contests in straight sets.

Caitlin Delmas and Toni McDonald teamed for an 8-1 win over the Quakers' Katie Claggett and Leigh Fishman at first doubles. Guilford's Nora Prokosch and Chandler MacDonald kept the second-doubles tilt close, before Randolph-Macon's Molly Jesseman and Melissa Tomlin pulled away for an 8-4 triumph. Landon Aud and Stephanie Yeager took an 8-0 decision at third doubles from Guilford's Makayla McLaurin and Alex Giddens.

Delmas needed a 10-7 pro set to finish off Guilford's Claggett at first singles. The Quakers' sophomore took the opening set, 6-2, before Delmas won set two, 6-0. Tomlin, Jesseman and McDonald posted 6-0, 6-0 wins at third, fifth and sixth singles, respectively.

Coach Dave McCain's Quakers (1-6, 0-4 ODAC) host league-rival Shenandoah University next Saturday (3/18) at 1:00 p.m. on the McMichael Centennial Class Courts.
