CEDARVILLE, Ohio – The Forester women’s tennis team hit the road to NCAA Division II Cedarville University where they overpowered their hosts for a 6-3 win at the Johnson-Murdoch Tennis Complex. The win marks Huntington’s first win of the spring as they wrap up the year with an 11-6 record.  

The match of the day came at No. 1 doubles where Morgan Bemisderfer and Celine Rongos were in a back and forth battle with Lauren Jackson and Kristen Heydt until the HU duo finally took control late in the match to tally the 8-6 win.
