NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Belmont women's tennis dropped to the Campbell Camels, 5-2, Monday morning at Centennial Sportsplex.

The Bruins received a pair of singles victories from the junior tandem of Maria Plaksina and Terra Sheldon but were unable to close out the day with a win. 

The visiting Camels took doubles point winning at positions one and three to open the contest. The duo of sophomore Lauren Carelli and junior Drew Hawkins logged Belmont's lone doubles victory over senior Lucile Pons and sophomore Inma Ramon of Campbell.
