Home /News /2011 Commencement

HUNTINGTON, Ind. – The Huntington women’s tennis team stretched their win streak to four Tuesday afternoon with a 7-2 win over Spring Arbor University. With this win, the Foresters wrap up league play and finish third in the standings with a Crossroads League record of 6-2.

The match of the day came at #1 doubles where the duo of Morgan Bemisderfer and Celine Rongos made a late rally for a come-from-behind 9-7 win over Mary-Kate McShane and Monika Wynne.

It was one of two wins in double action before the Foresters ran away with the win by tallying five victories in singles play.

“The high winds today made play very difficult,” noted Coach Roger Ferguson. “Players had to adjust their match tactics to use the wind to their advantage. We were able to adjust to the conditions and come away with a win over a very solid Spring Arbor team.”

HU now turns their attention to the conference tournament starting on October 4.
