HUNTINGTON, Ind. – The HU women’s tennis team celebrated their seniors in impressive fashion Saturday afternoon by posting an 8-1 win over Bethel College on senior day at Klopfenstein Courts.

It was only fitting that HU’s four seniors played a part in earning six of their team’s eight points. With this win, the Foresters improve to 5-2 in league play to hold at the No. 3 spot in the standings with only one conference match left.

Huntington’s seniors include Celine Rongos, Morgan Bemisderfer, Kerrie Ecker and Constanze Golz.

"It was a very emotional day for us as we honored our seniors then had to regain our focus for the match with Bethel," said Coach Roger Ferguson.

HU takes a break from league play by hosting Anderson University on Monday at 4:30 p.m.
