LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Franklin women's tennis team resumed conference play on Saturday afternoon, heading south for a meeting with the Transylvania Pioneers.

The Pioneers took all three doubles contests by a combined score of 24-6 with points coming from the duos of Madison Pifer and Kinley Harmon at the second pair, as well as Alayna Munson and Sydney Logsdon at the No. 3 doubles spot.

Singles competition resulted in six straight-set wins for Transy, keeping them in lock-step with Anderson for the top spot in the conference entering the final week of competition.
