After playing Villanova this past Saturday, Bison Women’s Tennis improved their record to 4-6 after securing a 4-3 win over the Wildcats. 

Starting with the doubles matches, the No. 3 doubles duo Madi Sebulsky ’24 and Caroline Marcus ’25 grabbed an early 6-1 win to put the Bison up. They were soon followed by a Wildcat win in the No. 1 doubles match, where Whitney King ’25 and Abby Platt ’26 fell 6-3. In an effort to secure another, Tyne Miller ‘24 and Anna Lajos ‘25 grabbed a 6-4 defeat. 

The Bison lead did not last for long with the Wildcats securing a point in the No. 1 singles match against King to tie up the game. Following in the No. 3 spot, Platt was able to dominate her match, winning 6-2, 6-2, putting the Bison back up 2-1. Not far behind, Tori Allen ’27 fell in her No. 6 singles match to tie the score up at 2-2. 

The two teams continued to go back and forth, with Jaycie Mair ’27 winning her No. 5 singles match 6-2, 7-5, and Lajos falling 7-6 (3), 5-7, 2-) in her No. 2 singles match.
