Noor Kaur, Staff Writer

After holding a lead of 2-0, the Women’s Tennis team fell 4-3 to St. Francis (Pa.) this past weekend.

Anna Lajos ’25 and Abby Platt ’26 competed together in the first doubles match of the day, winning 6-1. Kate Novak ’24 and Caroline Marcus ’25 also won their match with a score of 7-6. In the singles competition, Whitney King ’25 won (6-4, 2-6, 6-0), bringing the Bison to a 2-0 lead.

Bucknell’s next win came during the No. 6 singles as Mirra Manolov ’26 won 6-2, 6-1. Lajos and Tyne Miller ’24 battled hard in their respective matches, forcing extra sets but ultimately falling to St. Francis.

“This past weekend was a close loss,” Miller said. “Everyone fought and played well but we definitely have our eyes set on the next time we play St. Francis. It was Abby Platt’s first dual match as a freshman, and it was super fun to see her compete and take the court. This next weekend, we have two matches, which is a great opportunity and also a challenge we’re ready for. We’ve been competing and training hard so it will be a good weekend.”

This coming weekend, the Bison hit the road and look to compete against George Washington on Friday, Feb. 10 and Washington & Lee on Saturday, Feb. 11.
