PSU Women’s Tennis falls to Clark in spring match

Panthers wrap up spring workouts with loss to Cougars

            WORCESTER, Mass. – Host Clark University faced little resistance in their first of four spring matches, dispatching of Plymouth State University by a 9-0 score on a blustery but sunny Saturday afternoon on the Corash Tennis Courts.

            The win for the Scarlet and White inches their overall record closer to .500 at 7-8. The Panthers, meanwhile, now sit at 9-7 on the year after playing their only match of the spring.

            Clark rolled through doubles as Isabelle Long (Bellevue, Wash.) and Misa Mai (Sanford, Maine) posted an 8-0 win at No. 2 and then Maggie Tarbox (Lebanon, Conn.) teamed up with Rebecca Kravetz (Wayland, Mass.) for an 8-3 triumph at No. 3.

            The battle of the afternoon, however, came at No. 1 doubles where the Cougar combination of Emily Shuman (Needham, Mass.) and Adrien Horowitz (Arvada, Colo.) were locked in a battle with freshman Irene Ireme (Concord, N.H.) and Nikki Lund (Hingham, Mass.). Shuman and Horowitz eventually prevailed, topping the Panther duo in a tiebreaker, 9-8 (7-4).

            Clark used a 6-2, 6-0 win by Shuman over Lund at No. 2 and a Mai 6-1, 6-1 triumph over Megan Wheeler (Manchester, N.H.) to secure the win.
