Buies Creek, N.C. – The USC Upstate women's tennis team claimed its first win of the 2017 season as the Spartans defeated Campbell 5-2 at the Nisbet Tennis Center on Saturday.

Upstate improves to 1-5 while Campbell drops to 2-5.

"This is a great first win for our team and for USC Upstate women's tennis," head coach Oliver Trittenwein said. "I'm very happy with how our girls took care of doubles and went right into singles with momentum. The girls believe a little more in each other and the ability we have to win as a team."
