BC Women end 2nd BC Mountain Invitational on positive note

Brevard, N.C. - Lindsay Shaeffer had a great weekend as the BC Women’s Tennis team wrapped up the 2nd BC Mountain Invitational against teams from Wingate, Tusculum, Lee, and UNC Asheville.

On the other side of the bracket BC’s Lindsay Hostetter also advanced to the semifinals after a victory over Tusculum’s Pike 7-5, 6-1.
