BARBOURVILLE, KY, - Over the weekend, members of the Lincoln Memorial University men's and women's tennis teams participated in the 2010 Bulldog Bash hosted by Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky.

In women's play, the Lady Railsplitters had a strong showing  from sophomore Leah Donoff (Tipp City, OH) who made it to the semifinals in singles before losing to Shorter College's Candace Laurent 3-6, 4-6.  Newcomers Aura Penalosa (Bogota, Colombia) and Shena Joseph (Miramar, FL) each earned trips to the finals of the back draw bracket.  In that match, Joseph defeated teammate Penalosa 6-3, 5-7, 10-7 in the super tie breaker for the win.

In women's doubles play, LMU junior Sofia Lopez Mimendi (Mexico City, Mexico) and Donoff battled their way to the semifinals before falling to Lindsey Wilson's Trina Slapeka and Slavica Milanovic 5-7, 0-6.
