The Panthers opened their season this past weekend at the Lindsay Morehouse Invitational hosted by Williams. While no individual tournament winner was awarded due to the invitational’s round-robin nature, the Middlebury women’s tennis team came back home with wins in their hands. To start off, doubles partners Christina Puccinelli ’19 and Emma Gorman ’22 led the team with an 8–3 win on Saturday. Following this victory, the new members of the team stepped up to the court. Gorman and Nora Dahl ’22 each earned two wins in singles, and Ruhi Kamdar ’22 had one. Experienced players Puccinelli and Emily Bian ’21 also won one singles match each. The Panthers continued to dominate the courts on Sunday with doubles duo Gorman and Puccinelli, who tallied two wins, and Dahl and Kamdar, who defeated Skidmore in a match.

Not only did the women’s team boast their athletic abilities this weekend, but they also demonstrated class and sportsmanship. Puccinelli was presented the Lindsay Morehouse Award, a distinction celebrating positive character, friendship, perseverance and sportsmanship.

As the Panthers start their season off with multiple victories, we look forward to their performance at the ITA Championships hosted at Williams from Friday, Sept. 28 to Sunday, Sept. 30.
