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.
