Foresters Fall to St. Norbert in MWC Championship Tourney Semifinals
The Lake Forest College women's tennis team was defeated 5-0 by St. Norbert College in the semifinals of the Midwest Conference Championship Tournament on Friday. Freshman Gracie Mullins and junior Kaitlyn Martin took the Green Knights to a tiebreaker at #3 doubles.
Mullins and Martin were nearly able to avenge an 8-3 loss to St. Norbert earlier in the season but fell 9-8 (7-4) on Friday. The Foresters were also defeated 8-2 at #2 doubles and 8-3 by the Green Knights' top team.
Play was stopped after St. Norbert clinched the team victory with wins at #2 and #6 singles. Forester senior Nonie Carson was the only Forester leading her match at that time. She won the first set at #3 singles 7-5 and had taken the first game in the second set as well.
It was the final dual match of the fall season for the Foresters, who finished 5-10.
St. Norbert advances to the championshipship match against Grinnell College.
