Women’s tennis tripped up at Capital

Anna Hahn

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Earlham College women's tennis saw its three-match winning streak come to an end with an 8-1 loss to Capital University, Friday night at the Capital University Tennis Courts.

The Quakers' lone point came at no. 1 singles, where first year Anna Hahn won her team-leading sixth singles match of the season with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over the Crusaders' Madison Watt.

The evening's toughest match was arguably at no. 2 singles, where Earlham senior Yunjoo Shin put up a tough challenge and took Capital's Maria Sadek into a third set before eventually falling, 6-2, 2-6, 7-6 (7-3).

Capital took all three doubles matches to open the competition, with Hahn and Shin playing the closest match in an 8-4 loss to Watt and Sadek.

Earlham women's tennis has a quick turnaround before its next match on Saturday, Sept. 29, when the Quakers host Mount St. Joseph in a Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference contest. Match time is 11:00 a.m.
