The Cabrini women’s tennis team beat Baptist Bible College on Wednesday, Sept. 29. The Lady Cavs defeated them 9-0 overall after a three-hour match. They attributed the win to highly educational practices.

“We have been working a lot on communication, placement and moving our feet,” Michelle Lettmann, junior graphic design major, said.

The doubles matches resulted in a 3-0 win for Cabrini. Katie Kennedy and Alexis DiCamillo dominated their match 8-0. Lettmann and Victoria Nastala took their match 8-1. Gabriela Durand and Adrianna Scotto’s doubles match lasted the longest amount of time and they won 8-3.

“In the beginning we were not playing that strong but we stepped it up,” Scotto, freshman undeclared major, said.

“We struggled at coming up with a game strategy. Once we got used to their style of play it worked itself out,” Lettmann said.

The singles matches were just as successful for Cabrini’s tennis team. Team captain DiCamillo played incredibly well in her match. She won both sets against her opponent Julie Herr, 6-1.

“My biggest strength as a player is that I am consistent,” DiCamillo, junior human resources major, said.

Nastala played with focus and determination against her opponent, Cassidy Labaw. Nastala won both sets 6-0. Kennedy also had a strong match against her opponent, Katie Boger. Kennedy won both sets 6-1.

Following DiCamillo’s match, Lettmann played her singles match on the first court. Lettman defeated her opponent, Sarah Salzmann, 6-0, 6-2. Scotto also won against her opponent, Rebecca Wagner, 6-0, 6-1.

Durand had a strong first set against her opponent, Kellie Bernard. Durand defeated Bernard 6-0. The competition heated up in the second set but Durand cam out on top with a 6-4 win.

Although Cabrini’s women’s tennis team is a young team they certainly have the skills to serve-up the competition.

“I think the most difficult part about working with a young team it working with their mental understanding of the change from high school tennis to college tennis. I try to utilize my more experienced players by giving them a lot of leadership responsibilities,” John Magee, head coach, said.

All of the women on Cabrini’s tennis team seemed very in-tuned with one another during their match against Baptist Bible College. They all worked well together to pull out a win.

“I try to perceive how my teammates are feeling. I do my best to keep up the intensity both on and off the court,” DiCamillo said.
