Mississippi Gulf Coast blanked Holmes in women's tennis action Thursday, winning 9-0.
Bianca Buie (So, Baia Mare, Romania/Gheorghe Sincai National High School), Margarita Lopareva (Fr, Moscow, Russia/School No. 1101), Tierney Holmes (Fr, Greenwood/Greenwood) and Jillianne Craft (So, Gulfport/St. Patrick) each dropped only one game in sweeping their singles matches.
Buie and Lopareva won their doubles match 8-3, and Lyons teamed with Megan Bankston (Fr, Gulfport/Gulfport) to win 8-1.
Holmes dressed only four players, so Gulf Coast won a doubles match and two singles matches by forfeit.
