women’s tennis rolls past fords
Oh well; at least the season is going according to schedule. The Mules defeated the Fords, 8-1, for their fifth straight win since a loss to top-10 ranked Johns Hopkins. Combined with Washington’s 5-4 loss to Ursinus, the win put Muhlenberg (6-3, 5-1) in sole possession of second place in the Centennial Conference.
The top five players in the lineup all won at both doubles and singles, including two of the honored seniors, Jenn Powell and Carly Rotfeld. Powell won 7-5, 6-4 at No. 1 singles against a Ford player who came in with a seven-match winning streak and a perfect 6-0 CC record. Rotfeld’s 6-3, 6-3 triumph at No. 3 was the 39th of her career in spring dual matches, good for a tie for third in team history.
Also notable was an 8-4 victory by the No. 3 doubles team of sophomores Danielle Winston and Lindsay Schmidt, who moved into a tie for second place on the
program’s all-time list with 18 career wins as a pair in spring dual matches.
