The Vanderbilt Commodores (9-8, 3-5) picked up a much-needed victory over conference foe Missouri Tigers (10-10, 1-7) over the weekend on March 26. The Commodores entered Missouri’s Cooper Tennis Complex in the midst of a five-match skid, but were able to snap the streak and ultimately secure a 6-1 victory. 

The match began with the doubles round. The Commodores fell behind early as Holly Staff and Amy Stevens lost their match by a score of 6-1. From there, however, the Commodores took control. Marcella Cruz and Celia-Belle Mohr continued their impressive seasons with quick victories, and Anessa Lee and Bridget Stammel followed suit. 

Feeling the momentum from their doubles victories, the Commodores continued to roll. Singles Nos. 1 through 5 all won, with four of the five doing so in straight sets. While Cruz — playing No. 6 singles — lost, it didn’t change the final result, as the Commodores won 6-1.
