Tennessee (13-8, 7-6 SEC) defeated Alabama, 4-0, Sunday at Roberta Alison Baumgardner Tennis Facility in Tuscaloosa.

Sunday’s match concluded regular-season play.

“I was happy with the performance today,” Tennessee associate head coach Jarryd Chaplin said. “I thought the girls played a pretty complete match because the matches that got up early were able to finish. The ones that were down, got back to even. The doubles was back-and-forth, then we kind of pulled away. I was happy with the performance.”

The Lady Vols will next compete in the Southeastern Conference Tournament in Gainesville, Florida.

Tennessee will play the Crimson Tide in the second round at 6 p.m. EDT on Thursday.
