Sophs rule at tennis tourney
Three of the second-year players won a bracket at the F&M Fall Invitational, and the fourth reached a final.
The team of Danielle Winston and Lindsay Schmidt (left) picked up right where they left off as freshmen, winning the doubles title. The duo, which went 15-4 last year, dropped only four games in its three matches.
Winston and Schmidt were put in the unusual position of playing their teammates in the final. Sophomore Sara Sutker and senior Madeleine Goldfarb, playing together for the first time, won their semifinal match against a Gettysburg team in a tiebreak.
The fourth sophomore, Caitie Druker, stormed back after losing her first match to win the consolation bracket with three straight 8-0 triumphs.
Senior Jenn Powell lost her semifinal match to the eventual women’s singles champion.
For the Mule men, the freshman team of Jordan Rutt and Zach Adler made a nice run through the doubles draw. In their first match, they took a strong Johns Hopkins duo that wound up winning the championship to a tiebreak before losing, 7-4. Rutt and Adler then won two consolation matches before falling in another close match in the consolation final.
Sophomore John Osborne won his first singles match before falling in the second round.
