BOCA RATON-- The Williams Women's Tennis team lost for the first time this spring Tuesday at the hands of Lynn University, 6-3. Lynn is currently ranked #3 in DII.
Elkins picked up her second point of the night later during singles play, winning in straight sets 6-1, 6-1. Senior Caroline Capute was the only other Eph to win her singles match. Capute won her first set but dropped the second. She would recover to take the third 7-5.
"We played solid tennis today, and this isn't a disappointing loss at all. I'm a firm believer that matches like this can help us identify how to take our games to the next level," commented head coach Alison Swain.
Williams will play their last match before returning home on Thursday at Nova South Eastern.
