Bobcats vs Mit

On Saturday the Lady Bobcats travelled to MIT for their first outdoor match in a while. MIT was hosting its admitted students weekend and there was quite an atmosphere for the match as the courts were in the center of the action. Despite the distractions the Bobcats got ready to enjoy the struggle and the beautiful day.

In doubles MIT came out firing and took the top two spots quickly. At #3 Kristen and Erika put up a valiant fight in their match. Every game was long in this match that extended just past 90 minutes. In the end the Engineers pulled out the victory 9-7. At #4 Jenna and Adrienne took out the MIT pairing 8-2 with a strong display of disciplined doubles.

In singles the Bobcats had some intense matches. Jacqui gutted it out for a while with her talented opponent before falling in a close one. Meg, Ashley, and Erika also had similar results. At #5 Nicole Russell lost her first set 6-1. In the second she put on her game face and competed the best she has all season and took the set 6-2. The third set was a super tie-breaker and she fell just short 10-8. At #6 Jenna had a close first set 7-5 but was unable to get over the hump in the closely contested second set. In exhibition play, Adrienne won both her matches 8-5 and 8-2 respectively.
