Georgetown College women's tennis got back to its winning ways Saturday with an 8-1 victory over Mid-South Conference foe University of Pikeville. The Tigers are now 2-1 in league play.
Coach Jessica Cunningham was able to experiment with her line-up on the road. She paired Kelly Swanson and Shae Henry at the one double spot for an 8-5. Alyssa Kennedy and Natalie Fiepke moved from three doubles to two and improved to 5-1 on the season together.
Kaelin Roberts joined with Jacqueline Otis at the third spot and won by default, keeping Otis perfect on the season.
Georgetown College women's tennis took its first loss Sunday afternoon to NCAA Division II Bellarmine. The Knights took two of the doubles matches on their way to a 6-3 victory at the Lackey Tennis Center.
Jacqueline Otis and Shae Henry kept their doubles win streak alive at five matches this spring with an 8-5 victory over Bess Fley and Sydney Thompson.
Otis also won her singles match in the three spot for the Tigers, defeating Fley 6-0, 4-6, 6-2. This runs the senior's singles record to 5-0 this spring. She has twice played in the two spot and three times as the third spot.
Georgetown College women's tennis continued its impressive spring play, wrapping up a trip to Hilton Head, S.C. with a 7-2 win over Lenoir-Rhyne. The NCAA Division II team was not originally on the schedule, but the Tigers picked them up when Fairmont University was a no show for the spring break tournament.
It was a clean sweep in the doubles competitions. Coach Jessica Cunningham seems to have found the right combinations as in four matches GC has not dropped a doubles match.
Kaelin Roberts and Kelly Swanson have teamed up for a 4-0 record at the one spot. Jacqueline Otis and Shae Henry have done the same at the two, while Alyssa Kennedy and Natalie Fiepke have dominated at the three.
Georgetown College women's tennis, like most spring athletes, ready to get into playing matches. The Tigers (1-0) have had five matches postponed or canceled due to the winter storm systems. However, when the sun finally came out they showed no mercy. Wednesday afternoon at the Lackey Tennis Center, GC rolled Mid-South Conference foe St. Catharine 9-0, dropping just two games all day.
"We were tired of beating up on each other," said Tiger coach Jessica Cunningham with a smile before the match. "They are ready to go."
It showed as all three doubles courts were over in under 20 minutes in straight sets. Alyssa Kennedy and Natalie Fiepke put the first point on the board in the three spot. Moments later it was ones Kaelin Roberts and Kelly Swanson making it 2-0 GC.
Growing moments are always available in athletics. Georgetown College women's tennis grabbed a hold of such an opportunity and show great determination in the Mid-South Conference semifinals Friday afternoon.
GC battled No. 21 Campbellsville and made them work for every point in a 5-2 match. CU advances to the finals to face No. 3 Lindsey Wilson College.
First rain delayed the 9 am matches to 4 pm. Once play got underway, it was obvious the Tigers – receiving votes in the recent poll – meant business. They pulled ahead on the No. 2 doubles court and were in the thick of things at No. 1. Campbellsville rallied back at two, but Kaelin Roberts and Kelly Swanson took the top seed match 9-8 (7-2).
