PITTSBURGH — The Frostburg State women’s tennis team closed out its regular season with a narrow 5-4 loss to host Chatham in an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference match Monday afternoon.

The Bobcats fell to 1-15 overall and 1-5 in the AMCC, while the Cougars improved to 1-6 overall and 1-5 in the conference.

Chatham got on the board first when Beth Wolensky and Sarah Steward posted an 8-1 win over the Bobcat tandem of sophomore Jenn Tolbert (Hagerstown, Md./North Hagerstown) and freshman Reidon Dare (Potomac, Md./Winston Churchill) at No. 1 doubles.

Senior Megan Close (Berkeley Springs, W.Va./Berkeley Springs) and freshman Alex Buchanan (Stockton, Md./Pocomoke) edged Meg Beach-Hacking and Vanessa Close 9-7 at No. 2, and FSU picked up a forfeit win at the third flight.

However, Chatham won four of the six singles matches to claim the victory.

Wolensky outlasted Dare 6-3, 4-6, 6-1 at the No. 1 flight, and Tolbert countered with a hard-fought 6-7, 6-3, 10-8 win over Close at the second spot.
