Lady Netters Halve Two Saturday Matches

Lady Netters Halve Two Saturday Matches

The women's tennis team split two Saturday afternoon matches on Downing Howell Courts. The Lady Netters were bested by Mississippi College 7-2 in the morning before regrouping to smash Reinhardt 8-1 in the afternoon.

The Choctaws claimed two of the three doubles points to set up their Saturday morning win. Oglethorpe's No. 2 duo of Caffrey Francis and Clara Reinheimer claimed the Petrels lone point among the doubles by easily winning 8-0.

Francis continued her strong morning by winning at No. 1 singles in love-love fashion 6-0, 6-0, but it would represent the last point Oglethorpe could secure. The Choctaws posted straight set victories at No.'s 2, 3, 4 and 5 singles to wrap up their win. Freshman Tricia Groover fought valiantly at No. 6 before going down in a breathless tiebreaker, 3-6, 7-6 (5). Complete results versus Mississippi College included below.

Despite the morning setback, Oglethorpe was ready for the Golden Eagles of Reinhardt in the afternoon. The Petrels ripped through Reinhardt's short-handed lineup for the easy victory, securing the doubles points with easy back-to-back 8-2 wins.

Despite a bobble by K.C. Te at No. 2 singles, the Petrels cruised in straight sets over their Reinhardt foes with wins from Francis, Duff, Reinheimer and Groover in the singles competition. Complete results listed below.

The Lady Netters are now 3-6 on the season and will square off with Case Western Reserve this Monday at 3:00 p.m.
