Orlando, Fla. - March 15, 2018 - The Springfield College women's tennis team won five of the six singles matches to prevail by a 6-3 margin over Dickinson on Thursday afternoon as part of its annual spring break trip.
However, it was a much different story in singles play as Springfield put together a number of gritty efforts to prevail over Dickinson. Emily Etter (Guilford, Conn.) was dominant at the No. 2 spot for the Pride as she cruised to a 6-1, 6-0 win, while Ahlmeyer delivered a 7-5, 6-1 victory at No. 6. Addie Kendall (Lakeville, Mass.) turned in a 6-4, 6-2 triumph at No. 4, before both Cara Freadman (Richmond, Mass.) and Melissa Parrish (Framingham, Mass.) rallied from dropping first sets to lift the Pride to victory. Playing at the No. 1 singles position, Freadman bounced back with a 3-6, 6-2, 12-10 win, while Parrish registered a 2-6, 7-5, 10-2 win at No. 5.
Springfield will play for the final time in Florida on Friday afternoon at 3 pm versus Delaware Valley.
