Women's Tennis Falls Short Against Hanover and Defiance

Hanover, IN - The women's tennis team traveled to Hanover to take on Hanover and Defiance. Both Hanover and Defiance are NCAA Division III institutions and both compete in the Heartland conference.  The Tri-match took place at the Zeddies Tennis Center in Hanover, Indiana.

The Mountaineers had to travel without their number 1 seed, Taylor Moyers.  Berea started the evening off against Defiance.  Christine Gilbet-Crawford stepped up and played #1 seed for the Mountaineers and was able to grab the win, 6-0, 6-0.  Berea was not able to get another singles win and went into doubles down 1-5.  The doubles team of Cheyenne Guin and Kristol Whitt pulled out a 6-4, 6-3 win but Berea ended up falling short against the Yellow Jackets 7-2.

Berea would later take on Hanover.  The Panthers came into the game tonight as the number one team in the Heartland conference.  It was also senior night for Hanover so they came out ready to play. Once again Christine Gilbert-Crawford stepped up and played #1 seed for the Mountaineers and once again she was able to get the win 8-5 in a pro set series.  That would be the only win the Mountaineers would get against the Panthers.

"I thought we really played well, we needed these matches to show what we could be up against in a few years as Berea transitions into NCAA Division III," said Head Coach Montgomery.  "Overall it was a great experience for these ladies."
