Dayton, OH – Sinclair Women’s Tennis loses 1-8 to the very talented NCAA Division III power Ohio Wesleyan University Monday night.
The Tartan Pride got off to an impressive start as Freshman Tory Painter won at #1 Singles (6-2, 6-4). That match seemed to set the tone for what was in store for the visiting Battling Bishops of Ohio Wesleyan.
Ohio Wesleyan boosted a much older and more experienced team that even included a 2nd team All-Conference (NCAC) Junior. Not phased with the task at hand, the Pride contested every match and even pushed several games to tie breaks.
1. Painter (SCC) d. Kiourtsis (OWU) 6-2, 6-4
2. Quigney (OWU) d. Purvis (SCC) 6-0, 6-0
3. Conway (OWU) d. Kosins (SCC) 7-5, 6-3
4. Keffalos (OWU) d. Sizemore (SCC) 6-2, 6-1
5. Wodenstrek (OWU) d. Thomas (SCC) 7-5, 6-3
6. Taylor (OWU) d. Roth (SCC) 7-5, 6-7, 7-5
1. Kiourtsis/Quigney (OWU) d. Painter/Thomas (SCC) 9-8
2. Keffalos/Conway (OWU) d. Sizemore/Kosins (SCC) 6-2
3. Wodenstrek/Taylor (OWU) d. Purvis/Roth (SCC) 8-5
