By Skidmore Athletics The 20th-ranked Skidmore College women's tennis team wrapped its spring trip with a 5-4 win over 12th-ranked Case Western Reserve on Sunday, March 22, in the Blue/Grey Invitational at University of Mary Washington.
Skidmore (7-7) won two of three doubles matches to earn the 2-1 edge going into singles. Danielle Ginannetti ’18, Brianna Greene ’18, and Michelle Fuca ’18 won their singles matches to preserve the win.
Fuca came back to beat Surya Khadilkar 4-6, 7-6 (8-6), 6-3 at number five singles in the deciding match.
“I have nothing but pride and admiration for this group,” said Skidmore coach Curt Speeschneider. “They were put through the ringer a bit this week, with six tough matches in nine days, but kept coming back with more and more toughness. They gritted out two big wins over two very good nationally ranked programs in the last three days. This team loves to compete, and it shows every time they step on the court.”
