Five out of six singles players won their match at the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference Semi-Finals on Friday, Oct. 25 at Gwynedd-Mercy College, advancing them to the PAC Finals on Saturday, Oct. 26.

On Friday, the doubles won two matches, which advanced them to finals on Saturday at finals they placed runner up.

Jennifer Keller, a sophomore that transferred from Moravian College this year, took first place in the second singles after defeating Courtney Straga of Wesley 7-6, 6-3.

The match was well played and the win was well deserved after Wesley’s bench kept yelling at inappropriate times during the match.

Melissa Arriola, junior, who was playing for the first singles, lost in the semi-finals to Arcadia University’s Sarah McNicoll 10-4. McNicoll ended up defeating Bethany Smith of Marywood in the finals to take the PAC title.

“A good standing is when five out of six singles return the following day for the finals,” said Keller.

Tracy Stabler defeated Amy Gorman of Arcadia University 8-2 for the fourth singles in the quarterfinals, but Stabler lost to Eastern University’s Angela Sprock 6-4, 6-3.

In the final match for the sixth singles Rachel Shore lost 11-9 to Elizabeth Dettrick of Marywood.
