On the cold rainy morning of Saturday, Oct. 3, the women’s tennis team fought their way to a 9-0 victory.
Due to the heavy rain, the match was moved from the Cavalier’s home court to an indoor facility in Radnor. However, that did not stop the women’s serves from coming in hot.
Led by senior Terra McHenry and junior Elena Conway, the Cavs took control of the game early, winning all three double matches. McHenry and her part- ner improved to a 3-2 record in the conference prior to scoring an 8-2 No.1 doubles win.
“After losing to Marywood we realized that we needed to focus and play hard in the matches still to come. Losing is a part of tennis and I believe that the loss pushed us to play our hardest
in the following match against Keystone College,” McHenry said. “We all played to win and we learned that that is how we have to play the rest of the sea- son in order to make it to CSAC championships.”
Dynamic duo Nicole Broc- colino and Tori Yeich dictated an 8-2 doubles win, improving their record to a flawless 4-0.
“I thought everyone gave it everything they had and really united during that match,” Broccolino said. “It was our second match in less than 24 hours but you never would have known by the level of energy on the court.”
This energy transpired as senior Amy Held and sophomore Maggie Javitt obtained an 8-2 win in No. 3 doubles.
“We played for ourselves and for our teammates against Keystone knowing that we are a force to be reckoned with in our conference,” Javitt said. “Winning 9-0 gave us a confidence boost and a good mindset for the upcoming week. We play Gwynedd Mercy on Thursday and that match is argu- ably the biggest one we’ll play all season.”
The women have a total of five games left in the season. Out of the five matches, four of them will be against CSAC competitors and three will take place on the Cavaliers home court.
