Bison Women’s Tennis Team had a short, competitive weekend

Hannah Stuck, Senior Writer

The Orange and Blue headed to Baltimore, Md. to compete in the Loyola Invitational this weekend. These matches were supposed to be held over the course of three days, but bad weather ultimately took two of their competition days. 

The Bison got to compete in their first round singles matches and second round doubles matches before the rain came through. 

Six bison were scheduled to compete, with there being two doubles teams competing in a series of three. 

Anna Lajos ’25 and Abby Platt ’26 started off strong for the Bison, both beating players from Delaware State in the first round of singles. Continuing to their second round of singles, Lajos defeated her opponent 8-4, while Platt won her match at 8-0. This pair continued to have a great day, beating the same opponents 6-0 as a team in doubles. 

Caroline Marcus ’25 beat her opponent 8-3 alongside her partner Kate Novak ’24, but Loyola came back to win the next two matches. Marcus continued her play for the day with a doubles match with Mirra Manolov ’26, winning 6-2 over their opponents.

Tyne Miller ’24 and Whitney King ’25 lost in the first round of their series with Delaware State, but finished strong in the consolation quarterfinals to beat Lafayette 6-2 in their doubles match. 

Miller reflected on the weekend. “Unfortunately we got rained out so a three day tournament turned into a one day. We had never played the format that we played this past weekend but it was very fun to play. Everyone had the chance to play both singles and doubles. We have fall break and then we are heading to Michigan for our last fall competition. Everyone has been working and it’ll be a great fun way to end our fall season,.” Miller said.

The Orange and Blue’s Fall season is coming to a close, as they are heading to Michigan on Oct. 14 and 15 to compete against Davenport, Ferris State and Grand Valley State in their last matches of the season.
