Review: Women’s tennis
Women’s tennis (4–2) extended its winning streak to three on Sunday, defeating Williams, 5–4. The win marks the third time in two weeks that the Panthers have won a match 5–4, with the other two victories coming against Amherst (2-2) and Skidmore (5-1). Co-captains Emily Bian ’21 and Ann Martin Skelly ’21 were also honored during senior day on Sunday.
The Panthers automatically jumped out to a 2–0 lead on Sunday, since Williams had an insufficient number of players on their roster. A doubles win from Sami Remis ’24 and Amy Delman ’24, followed by singles wins by Kavina Amin ’24 and Gena Huang ’24 sealed the deal for the Panthers. Once again, the rookie class compiled another impressive showing, a theme all season for the Panthers.
Notably, Huang tallied her fourth straight singles win on Sunday, improving her overall record to 5–1 on the season. The rookie from Bath, Ontario has been on a roll this year, punctuated by her game-winning point against Skidmore on April 25.
“Feeding off my teammates energy is something that really motivates me on the court,” Huang said. “I never really expected to do this well in my freshman year––it’s definitely been surprising.”
The Panthers face Williams (1–3) again this Saturday, marking their final contest of the semester. The match will be played in Williamstown, with the start time slated for 1 p.m.
