Women's Tennis Drops Close Match vs. SwarthmoreWednesday, March 21, 2012 - page 2
Swarthmore, ranked 11th in the Atlantic South Region, swept the doubles and hung on to defeat Muhlenberg (ranked 12th), 5-4, in a match between two teams that reached the Centennial Conference semifinals last year.
The decisive match proved to be at No. 1 doubles, where the Garnet saved two match points en route to a 9-8 (9-7) win.
The loss left the Mules in a 3-0 hole, but they rebounded nicely to capture four of six singles matches. Sophomore Emily Szulman, who was part of the tough doubles loss, played exceptionally well in winning her No. 2 singles match, 6-1, 7-5.
Freshman Jennifer Goldberg made a comeback of her own, winning the third set 6-1 after a 6-0 loss in the second. Freshman Sharen Resnikoff (pictured) and junior Amanda von Taube both picked up their first singles wins of the spring in straight sets.
