BRYN MAWR, Pa. - The Bryn Mawr tennis team was back in action on Thursday afternoon for their final matchup of the 2018 calendar year. The Owls hit the road to take on Arcadia University, and despite once again playing down a player, it turned out to be an overwhelming performance as Bryn Mawr earned a 7-2 victory.
With a student-athlete still on a study-abroad trip for the fall, the Owls once again had to spot their opponents two points right out of the gate. That meant the two doubles teams in action had to buckle down and try and get Bryn Mawr off to a good start, and that's exactly what they did. At the top doubles spot, Amalia and Mia Parrish combined to earn a huge point, winning their match 8-4. Audrey Camacho and Caroline Horvatits managed even better, controlling their match most of the way in a strong 8-3 win.
In singles, the impressive performances only continued. At the number one singles spot, Amalia Parrish was absolutely unstoppable. The first-year gave her opponent fits all day, playing incredibly clean tennis en route to a thundering 6-0, 6-0 win. Audrey Camcho and Christina Xue each performed the same feat at second and fifth singles. Both never dropped a game in easy 6-0, 6-0 victories for the Owls. At third singles, Mia Parrish had to battle early against her opponent, but buckled down after the first few games and earned a solid 6-3, 6-0 win. Finally, Caroline Horvatits wrapped up the day with an equally strong 6-3, 6-1 win herself.
With today's performance, the Owls put an exclamation point on an impressive fall season. Bryn Mawr played to a 3-0 record in the fall. They didn't lose a single game in eight out of the 21 singles and doubles matches that were actually played, and of those 21 matches, Bryn Mawr lost only one of them. The team will continue to train hard throughout the winter and keep this impressive form going when they get back in action in the spring!
