Tennis Thumps McDaniel With Impressive Performance

WESTMINSTER, Md. - The Bryn Mawr tennis team threw down another highly impressive performance earlier Sunday afternoon. The Owls went on the road to McDaniel and made a clean sweep of the day, ultimately earning a 9-0 victory in the match.

The success for the Owls began in doubles, where the visitors claimed all three points in easy fashion. Lizzie Siegle and Sydney Kim were once again paired up at the top spot, and they showed great communication and teamwork in an 8-4 win. Eram Haider and Caroline Horvatits were even more dominant at second doubles. That duo lost just one game in their entire match, ultimately winning in an 8-1 throttling. Bryn Mawr's third doubles point came via walkover.

Bryn Mawr kept things rolling in singles as well. Siegle picked up a very clean 6-1, 6-2 win at the top singles spot. Eram Haider received a win by default at second singles. Sydney Kim battled to a 6-4 win in the first set of her third singles match before coasting home with a 6-0 win in the second set.

Caroline Horvatits played perhaps the most entertaining match of the afternoon at fourth singles. The freshman was well in control in the first set of her match against McDaniel's Lindsay Russell, winning 6-3. The second set was much more competitive, with both players winning games and making some impressive shots. However, Horvatits used a late break of serve to gut out a big 7-5 win in the second to claim the match victory. In the opposite direction, Mariam Haider was completely dominant at fifth singles in a 6-0, 6-0 bageling of her opponent. Bryn Mawr completed the sweep with one more win by forfeit at sixth singles.

The Owls have been on a great roll to close out the season, and they'll look to keep that going over their final week of play. Bryn Mawr will travel to Ursinus on Wednesday for one last midweek match before closing out their season at home on Saturday, April 29th against Dickinson.
