One of the surprise teams in GLIAC women's tennis this season has been Walsh University, who came to Hillsdale Friday afternoon and defeated the Chargers 6-3.
Hillsdale fell to 5-6 with the loss, while Walsh stayed in contention for a high seed in the conference tournament with a 9-3 overall record. Hillsdale plays at home throughout this weekend, hosting Lake Erie College at 10 a.m. Saturday and Malone University at 1 p.m. Sunday.
Walsh managed to win two very close matches among the doubles flights, including a 9-8 tiebreaker at No. 3 doubles.
Freshman Dana Grace Buck (pictured) bounced back from that frustrsting loss at doubles to post a 6-4, 6-3 win at No. 3 singles.
Sophomore Rachel Blaauw was also a winner in a lengthy match at No. 6 singles, bouncing back from a 6-1 loss in the second set to win the third set 7-6.
Sisters Morgan and Sydney Delp were impressive once again at No. 1 doubles, with an 8-5 win over Walsh's top two players.
