The Oglethorpe women's tennis team split the second day of their spring break trip Monday in Orlando, Florida, falling to No. 30 Kenyon in a sweep in the morning, but responding with a 9-0 victory of their own over Emerson in the evening. The results moved the Stormy Petrels to 2-3 on the young season.
The Petrels had a tough match with No. 30 Kenyon in the morning, and couldn't get anything going against their highly-decorated opponent. The highlight of the match was the No. 1 singles showdown in which senior Caroline Johnson played a second consecutive 3-set battle, following Sunday's 3-setter against Coe. Johnson's opponent, Diana Aboubakare, is regionally ranked and made the NCAA championships in 2017. After dropping the first set 6-2, Johnson battled back, just as she did on Sunday, to win the second set, 6-4. In the third set super-breaker, the players traded points before Johnson was bested 10-8.
