CLINTON, NY- The Purple Cows Fall to the Trinity Bantams  

After a long weekend of play, the team arrived at the courts this afternoon ready to play their hardest against the internationally renowned Trinity team. Our seniors all played beautiful matches in their final NESCAC tournament. Co-captain Nicole Friedman at the number one position fought hard, impressively getting points off of her opponent and holding her own during long rallies. Co-captain Hayley Parsons also hung with her opponent in long rallies. Caroline Hogan at the number nine position played beautifully to beat her opponent in 3. Ananya Mahalingam-Dhingra got a game off of her opponent, losing in 4 after really solid playing. Other highlights include Melissa Swann's well-deserved victory at the number eight position.

Overall, a great end to a satisfactory weekend for the Ephs.

 Co-Captain Ananya Mahalingam-Dhingra remarked, "We are pleased with everyone's performance this weekend. We came into the weekend aiming to finish 2nd and we achieved that goal. The team played especially well against Middlebury, maintaining focus against a very determined team. Also special shout out to Caroline Hogan and Melissa Swann for winning against Trinity"

 

Coach Blair Dils commented, "Mission accomplished this weekend. We got to the finals, put up a good fight against one of the top teams in the country, and now have our sights set on Brown on Thursday."
