The season-opening tournament being hosted by the Williams women's tennis team this weekend (9/10 and 9/1) is being named in honor of former Eph captain Lindsay Morehouse announced Eph head women's tennis coach Alison Swain '01. Swain and Morehouse were teammates in the Purple Valley.
Lindsay Morehouse was a standout student, athlete, and member of the Williams community. An analyst for Keefe, Bruyette & Woods in New York City, Lindsay was one of three Williams alumni/ae who died during the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
Lindsay's upbeat personality, indomitable spirit, and willingness to befriend, engage, and support those around her earned her the respect, friendship and admiration of all who knew her in the Williams community. The contributions of this remarkable young woman to the college were many and far-reaching, and nowhere felt more deeply than in the Williams women's tennis team.
Lindsay's on court achievements as a member of the Eph squad were many. She started on the team all four years, led the Ephwomen to four straight NCAA tournaments (including a second place finish in 1999), was a 1998-99 All-American, and was team captain her senior year. Even more remarkable, however, was the standard she set for herself and her teammates as members of the Williams team.
