CHARLESTON, S.C. - With a straight set win on Tuesday afternoon against Grace Baker of the College of Charleston, UMass tennis senior Jessica Podlofsky became the Minutewomen's all-time singles record holder with her 68th career win.

The Cougars won the doubles point taking the No. 2 and No. 3 matches for the early 1-0 lead in the match.
Sonia Bokhari narrowly fell to COFC's Brooke McAmis in three sets after winning the first 6-2. McAmis won the second set 6-0 before pulling out a 4-3 win in the tie-breaker set.
The match against Georgia Southern on Thursday was originally set for Tuesday, but inclement weather in Charleston forced it to be postponed to Thursday.
