Women Cap Regular Season with Senior Day Win

Women Cap Regular Season with Senior Day Win

The Lady Netters closed the regular season on an upswing on Saturday afternoon by notching a 5-4 Senior Day victory over Columbia on Downing Howell Courts.

The Petrels bid farewell to graduating seniors LaDonna Barnes and Kayla Atkins in a pre-match ceremony and then gutted out the 5-4 decision. Oglethorpe took two of three doubles matches to open up a lead they would never relinquish. The Petrels got doubles wins from the numbers one and two positions but seniors Barnes and Atkins were felled at No. 3, 8-5.

Oglethorpe got easy singles points on dominating wins from Kate Siess and Caffrey Francis before junior Jayme Danielson clinched the match with a win at No. 1, 7-5, 6-1. Complete Columbia match results included below.

The Lady Netters finish the season with an 8-12 overall record and will travel to North Little Rock, Arkansas for the SCAC Championships this coming weekend.
