ELSAH, Ill. -- The women's tennis team opened their 2018 season with Brett Brannon as their new head coach and split a pair of matches. They fell to Lake Forest 7-2 before picking up a 9-0 win over Principia.
Greenville's wins against Lake Forest came by default as LFC only had a roster of five players. Thus, Greenville took the win at No. 6 singles and No. 3 doubles.
The match against Principia was the highlight of the day as the Panthers were perfect in their defeat of the SLIAC institution.
No. 4 Courtney Blaser took a 6-0, 6-0 win.
The Panthers won all three doubles matches as well. The No. 1 team of Pearce and Wieland won in a 7-4 tiebreaker.
The No. 2 team of Siefken and Blaser topped Principia 8-2, and the No. 3 duo of Fennewald and Bowman were 8-1 winners.
The Panthers (1-1) go to Hilton Head, S.C. for their spring break competition beginning on Monday, March 12.
