The Liberty Lady Flames completed their Big South swing through the state of South Carolina, Saturday, falling 6-1 to the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers.

The host Chanticleers opened the match, by taking the doubles point. Liberty's Jordan Jenkins and Nadia Solomon-Burgess defeated Coastal Carolina's Lexi Bolesky and Miki Bunea, 8-5, in the No. 1 contest. However, the Chanticleers won the No. 2 doubles match and picked up a default in the No. 3 contest to put the point on its side of the scoreboard.

In singles, Coastal Carolina took four of the five matches contested and picked up a default at No. 6 for the final margin of victory. Jordan Jenkins, ranked No. 99 by the ITA, ran her season record to 6-2 in the spring, with a 6-4, 7-5, straight-set victory in No. 1 singles over Bolesky.

Liberty falls to 1-7 overall and 0-2 in Big South Conference play. Coastal Carolina moves to 8-1 overall and 2-0 in conference action.

The Lady Flames travel to Florida for their Spring Break Tournament. Liberty meets Fairfield, Tuesday.
