Tennis Suffers Tough Loss at Franklin & Marshall

Tennis Suffers Tough Loss at Franklin & Marshall

LANCASTER, Pa. - The Bryn Mawr tennis team was back in action earlier Friday for another tough Centennial Conference match. Taking on the Diplomats of Franklin & Marshall, the Owls put together a really solid fight throughout the afternoon. However, the Dips, who came into the day on a nine-match winning streak, were able to string together some strong play of their own, ultimately taking a 9-0 win on the day.

Bryn Mawr's top doubles squad of Sydney Kim and Lizzie Siegle had a solid showing on the day. The duo posted the strongest showing of any Owls doubles pairing, winning three games in their match. However, the Diplomats' top doubles pairing would end up winning by an 8-3 scoreline, and the two other doubles matches went in their favor as well.

In singles, Siegle was busy again at the number one spot. She and Kim were the lone Owls able to win games in both sets of their matches, with Siegle battling to a tough 6-1, 6-2 loss. Kim had the reverse scoreline at third singles, putting together some very strong stretches of play in a 6-2, 6-1 loss. That alone was enough to give Franklin & Marshall their tenth win in a row, though the Diplomats would ultimately go on to win the other four matches as well.

The Owls will now get a rare weekend off before being back in action for a very busy week next week. Bryn Mawr will see a stretch of three home matches in four days next week, starting on Monday with a 4 PM match against non-conference foe Penn State Brandywine. The Owls will also host Centennial Conference opponents Haverford on Tuesday and Gettysburg on Thursday.
