Georgetown College women's tennis team had an equally tough first couple of matches on the road this past weekend. The played No. 25 Marian University and lost 8-1, but beat University of Northern Ohio, which is right behind Marian for being in the Top 25, 5-4.
"We really wanted to test ourselves," said Tiger coach Jessica Cunningham. "I know they were not happy with the result against Marian and came out ready to fight Saturday. I was really pleased with how we rebounded the very next day."
It was a youthful pair in doubles - freshman Kaelin Roberts and sophomore Jacqueline Otis - that got the lone point for the Tigers Friday against Marian. Roberts also had a strong showing in singles, losing 7-6, 6-3.
Otis and Kelly Swanson then quickly won their singles matches, 6-0, 6-2 and 6-4, 6-1 respectively to put the Tigers one win again from the match. However, every other GC player was down a set in their matches at this point.
Senior Haley Hart battles to force a third set, but losses 7-6 in the final set after a three-hour battle with Andrea Arango. Roberts also battles to force a third set and pulled off the victory, 6-3, to clinch the winning point for Georgetown.
"We are young, but very talented this year," Cunningham said. "It showed a bit this weekend, but I think we also showed a lot of potential. It was a tough start with Marian, but to bounce back against the No. 26 team in the nation, that was awesome."
