The Kenyon Ladies’ tennis team played their final three home matches last week before closing out the regular season with a tough stretch of away matches.

The first of this trio of matches in Gambier began at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 5, at the Kenyon-hosted Great Lakes Colleges Association Championship. The Ladies lost to Kalamazoo College 6-3.

Later that day, the Ladies played the University of Findlay. This proved to be another close contest, but Kenyon won 5-4.

“We played two really good teams this weekend, and the rest of the teams that we play this season are going to be really good,” Abby Younger ’15 said.

On Monday, April 7, Kenyon hosted Ohio Wesleyan University, shutting out the Battling Bishops 9-0 while celebrating Senior Day in honor of Samantha Betts ’14.

Samantha Murphy ’16 believes they have the potential for a successful conclusion to the year.

“I think that the biggest key for myself and the team is being able to keep that goal in sight — of finishing out the season strong — and to keep working hard,” Murphy said.

The Ladies’ next match is Wednesday, April 16 at the College of Wooster.
