Women's Tennis Ends Season Fourth in SLIAC with Loss to Westminister

The Lady Panthers Tennis team played their last game of the season today, as they took on Westminster in the last round of the SLIAC Tournament. They lost 2-7, ending their season fourth in Conference.

In singles play, Kristen Lynch was the sole Panther victor, winning her match with an impressive score of 6-1, 6-1. Kim Minshall also played with outstanding determination, taking her match to a tie-breaker. Unfortunatetly, she could not pull off the win and lost 3-6, 6-3 (6-10).

Lynch brought her stellar work ethic into her doubles play when she joined teammate Chelsie Evans in the No. 3 doubles spot. The duo battled it out to earn themselves a 8-4 win over their Westminster opponents.

The Lady Panthers end their season with a record of 5-10 (3-3 SLIAC). The young team expects to continue improving and come back next year as a team to be feared. The team will undoubtedly feel the loss of seniors Katie Maurer and Kim Minshall, but hope to develop their younger players and earn a spot as SLIAC frontrunners in the seasons to come.
