Beloit, WI/Rockford, IL -- The Beloit College Women's Tennis team got long-time head coach his 250th career dual match win on Saturday as they swept a pair of non-conference matches at the Strong Complex Tennis Courts and the Rockford Boylan Tennis Center.
The Bucs defeated Judson University 5-4 in the morning in Beloit for Hodge's milestone win and then ventured to Rockford because of rain to top the University of Dubuque 8-1 in the late afternoon.
Against Judson, Ashley Miglin won the deciding match at #6 Singles. Also posting Singles wins were Taylor Jones at #4 in three sets and Emma Beck at #5. Courtney Yates and Taylor Jones at #1 Doubles and Beck and Miglin at #3 recorded the other two points in the tight match.
Against Dubuque, the Buccaneers won everything except #6 Singles in rushing past the Spartans.
The two wins give Beloit 11 on the season with two matches left. It's the 12th time in Hodge's 28 seasons the program has reached double-figure wins. He is now 251-144 in his dual match career.
The Buccaneers close out the regular season next Saturday when they host St. Norbert College and Grinnell College at the Strong Courts. Action begins against Grinnell at 9:00 a.m. and wraps against St. Norbert at 3:00 p.m.
