Emory Women’s Tennis Falls to Williams at Fab 5 Tournament

Emory Women’s Tennis Falls to Williams at Fab 5 Tournament

In a battle of two of the top three teams in Division III, the second-ranked Emory University women’s tennis team fell short against third-ranked Williams College, losing 6-3 in the final match of the Fab 5 Tournament.

After dropping all three of the doubles matches, the Eagles and the Ephs played a number of tight singles matches, as each of the first three singles contests went into a third set.  However, Williams was able to pull victories out in each of the third sets to clinch a team victory.

Emory received straight-set victories from Lindsay Reidenbach in the fourth singles match, Tshema Nash in the fifth singles match, and Sara Vrabec in the sixth singles match, but it would not be enough to spark an Eagles comeback.

With the victory, Nash raised her team-leading singles win total to 18 (with an 18-2 overall record), while Vrabec improved to 16-1 and Reidenbach to 15-5. 

After entering the weekend without a loss to a Division III squad this season, the Eagles have now dropped two straight to teams ranked in the top six in Division III.  Emory fell to 14-4 overall on the year, while Williams improved to 7-1.

Emory’s next match will be on Saturday, April 10th, as Emory will travel to Berry College for a 1:00 PM match against the Lady Vikings.
