The women’s tennis team has gotten off to a slow start to the 2015 season. After their first competition of the season at Millikin got cancelled because of inclement weather, the Scots are 0-5. The women’s team started off the week going up against Saint Ambrose University at home on Tuesday, September 8th.
The women lost in five out of six of their singles competition. The team’s only win came from Callie Cook in 7-5 and 6-0 victories. After the pairs of Katherine Hinman and Liddy Wilson and Katy Tolsky and Annaliese McDermott both lost their doubles competitions, Morgan Holle/Callie Cook finished off the day with a victory. The Scots fell to 0-3 on the year following their 7-2 loss to Saint Ambrose.
On Saturday, the Scots travelled to Grinnell, Iowa to face off against their 2-1 women’s team. The Scots had a rough day as they lost 9-0 overall. The closest match was Katy Tolsky and Annaliese McDermott in their doubles competition who lost their match 8-4. The Scots fell to 0-4 on the season.
The next day, the Scots competed at Cornell College against the 3-2 Rams. Callie Cook once again got the only win for the Scots in the singles competition. She won 6-0 in straight sets. Cook then teamed up with Morgan Holle to win their doubles competition 8-4. The Scots would fall to 0-5 on the season with a 7-2 loss to the Rams.
