Hillsdale Closes Out Regular Season With Win Over Findlay

Hillsdale Closes Out Regular Season With Win Over Findlay

Cooler weather descended upon Hillsdale Wednesday afternoon, but there was nothing cold about the Hillsdale College tennis team.

The Chargers will roll into postseason play off a 6-3 win over the University of Findlay in a match contested inside the Margot V. Biermann Center. Hillsdale is now 8-6 on the season and sits in sixth place in the conference.

Junior Morgan Delp (pictured) picked up wins in both singles and doubles, winning a lengthy second set, 6-2, 7-6 (3) at No. 1 singles. Earlier, she teamed up with sister Sydney Delp for an 8-5 win at No. 1 doubles.

Sophomore Lindsay Peirce has played some of her best tennis in the last couple weeks, and also got two wins Wednesday. She rolled to a 6-2, 6-1 win at No. 4 singles, and was an 8-5 winner at No. 2 doubles with another double-winner on the day, freshman Jada Bissett.

Bissett was a 6-1, 6-2 winner at No. 5 singles, and the No. 3 doubles team of Rachel Blaauw and Dana Grace Buck cruised to an 8-3 victory.
