Women’s Tennis
2006-07 Season Review:

The Muhlenberg women’s tennis team relied on the power of three in 2007.

The top three players in the lineup – sophomore Jenn Powell at No. 1, senior Pam Kimmelman at No. 2 and sophomore Carly
Pam Kimmelman
Kimmelman finished her career with a combined record of 92-38. She ranked second in program history with 84 combined wins in spring dual matches.
Rotfeld
at No. 3 – had fantastic seasons, but too often it was not enough to lift the Mules to victory.

Eight times in 14 matches, Muhlenberg scored four points by winning at first through third singles and first doubles. It takes five points to win a match, however, and the Mules finished with a record of 5-9. All nine of their losses were to teams that were ranked in the Atlantic South region during the season.

Powell, who played No. 4 as a freshman, moved up to the top spot and went 9-5, including a 7-3 mark in the Centennial Conference. One of her wins came in straight sets against an All-Centennial selection, and another was against the Commonwealth Conference player of the year.

Kimmelman finished her career on a high note, going 12-2. She reeled off 10 straight victories in one stretch, dropping only 27 games and blanking consecutive opponents, 6-0, 6-0.

Rotfeld had the longest winning streak of the season, starting out 11-0 before dropping a match in a third-set supertiebreaker. She ended up with a 13-1 singles mark, winning at least one set 6-0 in seven of her 13 wins.

The terrific trio combined for a 34-8 singles record (24-6 in the Centennial Conference). Powell and Kimmelman also combined for a 10-4 record at No. 1 doubles, including wins against the 17th- and 26th-ranked doubles teams in the region.
