 Last Friday, the women’s tennis team took on the third ranked junior college team in America, Seward County Community College. Although the Reddies didn’t walk away with a W, it was a close one. 

Annie Shannon was in the first singles match against SCCC’s Patricia Fanta. She was defeated6-2 and 6-1. 

HSU’s Thea Minor defeated SCCC’s Maria Avega at 6-1, 7-6, and 7-5. The next match was SCCC’s Alena Macharova against our own Sydnee Parker during which Parker was defeated at 6-3, 7-6, and 7-4. 

Lorraine Banimataku was defeated bu SCCC’s Steffany Bermudez at scores of 1-6, 6-3, and 6-4. Afterwards, HSU’s Mariah Bartlett was defeated by Martina Borges at 6-3 and 6-2. 

The final singles match was between Reddies’ Lorish Puluspene and SCCC’s Yusna Hegy. Puluspene was sadly defeated at 7-5 and 6-2. 

The doubles matches fared better for HSU. The teams of Sydnee Parker and Mariah Bartlett, and Lorraine Banimataku and Lorish Puluspene persevered against their opponents. Annie Shannon and Thea Minor weren’t able to pull off a victory, however. 

So, while the women didn’t take the day, they still showed immense promise. The next match will be Fri. at 2 p.m. at home against Southwest Baptist University.
