RICHMOND, Ind. - The Huntington women’s tennis split a pair of matches over the weekend, dropping a 6-3 decision to Marian University on Friday before bouncing back with a lopsided 7-2 win over IU East on Saturday.
Against the Knights, HU’s only doubles win came at the No. 1 spot where Cassie Kasicki teamed up with Morgan Bemisderfer at register an 8-5 win over Marian’s Brittney Horlacher and Hannah Knust.
Bemisderfer went on to earn another point for her team at #3 singles where she claimed a 6-3 first set before Sarah Dotter bowed out. Celine Rongos turned in HU’s only other win with a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Knust.
Against the IU East on Saturday, the Foresters left little doubt they were the better team as they tallied two wins in double play before piling up fives in singles action to cruise to the win.
The Foresters move to 4-5 overall, 3-4 in league play. With only Grace left play on Tuesday, Huntington is currently fifth in the conference standings.
