CARLISLE, Pa. - The Bryn Mawr tennis team was back in action on Saturday afternoon, as the Owls traveled to central PA to take on Dickinson. Once again, it was Amalia Parrish and Audrey Camacho who led the way for the Owls, although there were numerous strong performances across the board for Bryn Mawr.
Parrish and Camacho once again paired up at the top doubles spot on this afternoon, looking to get the match off to a good start for Bryn Mawr. They did just that, bringing a strong performance the entire match against Dickinson's Flame and Shea. The duo never really let their Red Devils opponents gain a foothold in their match, as Parrish and Camacho ultimately pulled away to an 8-4 win in their match.
Caroline Horvatits and Libby Hemp teamed up at second doubles, and they too battled hard in their match, but the duo came up on the wrong end of an 8-2 scoreline. Christina Xue and Francesca Caramazza combined for the third Owls doubles team, and they put up a strong fight against their opponents. The Bryn Mawr duo won five games in the match, but just a few key points went the wrong way for the Owls, and they were forced to take a tough 8-5 loss.
In singles, Parrish and Camacho immediately went back to work, trying to keep the Owls in the match. At first singles, Parrish was steady the whole way through her match. The first-year has shown no signs of backing down in conference singles matches this season, and that continued today. Parrish ultimately claimed a 6-3, 6-2 win in her match, giving the Owls another point on the day. Camacho continued to impress as well, as she played nearly flawless tennis at second doubles. She too picked up a win for the Owls, taking a 6-0, 6-0 victory to get Bryn Mawr on three points.
Unfortunately, the Owls were unable to come out on top in any of the other singles matches. At Hemp fought hard at sixth singles the whole way, but just a few points went the wrong way for her, and she lost 6-4, 6-4. Caramazza and Xue were able to win games in their matches, but they too came up just a little short, while Horvatits battled hard but lost a 6-0, 6-0 decision of her own.
Bryn Mawr will be back in action next week, as the Owls return home on Wednesday to welcome Washington College for a 4:00 PM contest on the Bryn Mawr tennis courts.
