Doubles sweep propels women’s tennis
Combined with the baseball win just across the path, the victory on the courts gave Muhlenberg a 9-2 lead in the Matte Award standings for the 2009-10 season. The Mules have clinched a tie and need to win only one of the remaining seven contests to claim the trophy outright.
Two of the three doubles matches were decided by 8-6 finals, and the third was 8-8 before the Muhlenberg team of juniors Danielle Winston and Lindsay Schmidt won 7-5 in the tiebreaker. Winston, who has a habit of playing long matches, won a 7-5 tiebreaker in her first set at No. 3 singles before the match was called due to darkness.
Juniors Chelsey Waldron (right) and Deniz Uzel teamed up for their first win together at No. 3 doubles. At No. 6 singles, Uzel came back to win the second set, although she lost the supertiebreaker.
Schmidt and junior Caitie Druker, the Mules’ No. 1 player, won at both doubles and singles.
