Women’s Tennis Team Rolls Past Tornado in Conference Play for 9th straight win!

Bristol, TN – The Emmanuel Women's Tennis Team traveled out of state for a final showdown in conference Carolinas matches this season, now at the courts of the King University Tornado!

Just as the day before, Emmanuel looked impeccable in doubles action! All three doubles were performing great with almost no mistakes. The first pair to snag a win was Raich / Kiderlen on court #2, who never dropped a single game for a clean 8-0. On court #1, Botella / O'Connor also never had problems and without wasting much time, the duo clinched an 8-1 victory. Finally, on court #3, Cipriano / Silva finished the season undefeated in conference play with a quick 8-0 over the tornado team.

For the 3rd straight time, the Lady Lions were ahead 3-0 after doubles and looking strong for singles play. The Junior, Fantine Botella was the first one to step out of the court with a victory this afternoon without dropping any games, 6-0 6-0. Following her teammates footsteps, Pearllan Cipriano also took down the tornado by 6-0 6-0 on court #2, clinching the match for the Lions. Without any more pressure, but still hungry for wins, Emmanuel swept the Tornado at the rest of the singles play. First, Maria Raich never missed a chance and earned a quick 8-0 win on court #3, followed by Victoria Silva on court #4, who in a blink of an eye also won by 8-0. The last two points of the day were from the Junior Katharina Kiderlen on court #5, who had no issues from start to finish to win by 8-0, and then the senior, Abi Muesse, was on cruise control the whole time and finished the match with an 8-1 victory on court #6.

Coming up next, Emmanuel will be back to the home courts this Sunday for a senior day event! Emmanuel College will host Johnson C. Smith in a non-conference match. First serve is scheduled for 1:00PM!
