Women’s Tennis prevails in Michigan

Morgan Sohosky , Senior Writer

The women’s tennis team was on the road last weekend competing against three different schools in Michigan including Davenport University, Grand Valley State University and Ferris State University. 

The team had an overall 2-1 record, falling only to Ferris State. 

They first stopped in Grand Rapids, Mich., to compete against Davenport University. They had a 4-3 win over the Panthers, but not without a fight. Tyne Miller ’24 turned the Bison around as she pulled out a win in the No. 2 singles. 

Contributing to the team win also included Caroline Marcus ’25, who won a first-set tiebreaker 9-7 and won the second set 6-4 to take the win over her opponent. Anna Lajos ’25, playing the teams No. 1 spot, started her match behind, losing the first set. She came back with a second set tiebreaker and fought a strong 6-1 final set to take the win. Finally, Whitney King ’25 also had a straight-set win at No. 3 singles.

As they moved along with their weekend, their next stop was a dual match against both Grand Valley State University and Ferris State University in Allendale, Mich. They finished with a split, including a win over the Grand Valley Lakers and a loss against Ferris State Bulldogs. 

Starting out against the Lakers, Kate Novak ’24 brought in a win after a long match which clinched the 5-2 win for the Bison. Four out of the six matches went into three sets, making it a long day for the Lady Bison. This showed as they entered their final match against the Ferris State Bulldogs and ultimately fell 1-4. 

The women’s tennis team will have a restful off-season as they prepare for their next match in the spring at Rutgers University in Piscataway, N.J. on Jan. 21.
