Women’s tennis split their matches last week, grabbing an 8-1 victory over the College of Wooster on April 15 before dropping a match 7-2 against the Oberlin College Yeowomen last Thursday night.
In their match against Wooster, the Ladies won all three doubles matches and all but one singles match. The Ladies opened with number-three doubles, where Alyssa Moreau ’18 and Abigail Younger ’15 took down Wooster 8-5. At number-one doubles, Diana Aboubakare ’18 and Samantha Murphy ’16 battled to an 8-6 win. Grace Winslow ’18 and Jenna Murray ’17 won in the number-two doubles spot, 8-4.
Aboubakare conquered her opponent at number-one singles 6-1, 6-0. Kenyon’s clinching point came from Winslow, who won 7-5, 6-0. Elise Altschuler ’16, Younger and Murray strengthened Kenyon’s victory by winning their singles matches. “I think that everyone played really well,” Murray said. “It’s a nice way to go into conferences.”
The Ladies are looking forward to the NCAC Championships, which will take place from April 24 to 26. They will first face off against Allegheny College, whom they lost to earlier on April 12. “I know everyone is very excited and ready to play them,” Younger said. “I’m looking forward to one last weekend with these girls.”
