Women's Tennis Drops Non-Conference Match to W&J

WASHINGTON, Pa. — Frostburg State won two of three doubles contests for the first time this season, but host Washington & Jefferson stormed back to claim five of the six singles matches to post a 6-3 victory over the Bobcats in women's tennis action Thursday afternoon.

Washington & Jefferson improved to 5-4 on the season, while Frostburg State remained winless at 0-12.

Freshman Reidon Dare (Potomac, Md./Winston Churchill) and sophomore Jenn Tolbert (Hagerstown, Md./North Hagerstown) won their second doubles match in as many days, edging Missy Barnickel and Allison Johnston 9-7 at the top flight.

Senior Megan Close (Berkeley Springs, W.Va./Berkeley Springs) and freshman Amy Wittenberg (California, Md./Leonardtown) then followed with a narrow 8-6 victory over Martina Helfferich and Jules Novak at No. 2 doubles before the Presidents got on the board when Lisa McLaughlin and Kerri DiGiovanni downed Bobcat sophomores Sharis Erwin (Upper Marlboro, Md./Oxon Hill) and Kimberly Hardy (Centreville, Md./Queen Anne's) by an 8-1 margin at the third flight.

Dare won her second singles match in two days when she posted a 6-0, 6-3 sweep of Barnickel at the top singles flight, but W&J claimed the final five flights in straight sets to complete the victory.

The Bobcats will host Division II West Virginia State Sunday at 1:00 pm.
