POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - The Bryn Mawr tennis team wrapped up the 2019 Seven Sisters Championship earlier Sunday at Vassar, and there were numerous strong performances from the Owls on the day. Bryn Mawr opened the day by knocking off the Pioneers of Smith College in the morning, and then put up a very solid battle against Wellesley in their final match of the day.
Bryn Mawr got off to a very fast start in their matchup with Smith, as the top two Owls blanked their opponents in singles. Amalia Parrish and Audrey Camcho each earned dominating 6-0, 6-0 wins in the contest, handing Bryn Mawr an early lead. Caroline Horvatits suffered a tough 3-6, 1-6 loss at third singles, but the Owls clinched the win thanks to a strong performance from Christina Xue at fourth singles. Xue outdueled her opponent to earn a comamanding 6-3, 6-3 win. The Owls capped off the morning with a win in doubles as well, as Libby Hemp and Francesca Caramazza won their first set 6-2, and then after a tough loss in the second set, regrouped to win the tiebreaker 10-6. That ultimately gave Bryn Mawr their 4-1 victory, the Owls' first win of the spring season.
In the afternoon session, Bryn Mawr closed out the tournament with a matchup against Wellesley. This matchup unfortunately ended up in the opposite result as the Owls' morning session, as Wellesley were the ones who took an early advantage. The Blue picked up a quick 6-0, 6-0 win in doubles, and then secured the match with a pair of wins at third and fourth doubles. Bryn Mawr never gave up the fight, however, as the top two Owls battled deep into the match. Parrish went the distance at first singles, as she lost a tough tiebreak in the opening set, but then flipped the script to win the second set 7-6 herself. However, the final break didn't go her way, as she lost the tiebreaker 10-4 to give her Blue opponent the match. Bryn Mawr's lone point of the match came at second singles, where Audrey Camacho once again put on a very strong performance. Camacho was in a back-and-forth battle all afternoon, but ultimately came out victorious 7-6, 7-6 thanks to two strong tiebreaker performances.
After her strong performance throughout the weekend, Amalia Parrish was named to the Seven Sisters All-Tournament Team.
The Owls will now return to Bryn Mawr and continue their spring training, as the team does not have another match on the schedule until March 23rd, when they open conference play against McDaniel.
