SALISBURY, MD – The 2009 York College
women’s tennis season came to a close Tuesday afternoon as
the Spartans fell to Salisbury 8-1 in the semifinal round of the
Capital Athletic Conference tournament. The Green and White end the
year with a 5-11 mark while the Sea Gulls (14-4) move on to face
Mary Washington for the CAC Championship.
The lone Spartan victory came from freshman Samantha Brenner (Mount Airy, Md./South Carroll) in the sixth singles slot. Brenner outlasted Lauren Bakker in a lengthy three set match. The rookie took the first set 6-3 before falling in the second 3-6. Brenner, who has now won five straight, then secured the victory with a 13-11 third-set triumph.
The top five singles slots belonged to the Sea Gulls as they took each match in straight sets.
Prior to the singles matches, Salisbury swept each of the three doubles contests. Megan Logan (West Chester, Pa./West Chester East) and Stephanie Nelson (Marriottsville, Md./Liberty) provided the stiffest test for the Sea Gulls in third doubles, but still fell by an 8-4 count.
With the defeat the Spartan bid adieu to seniors Logan, Heidi Acker (Narvon, Pa./Pequea Valley), and Keturah Buchanan (York, Pa./William Penn). This trio of seniors has helped to lay a strong foundation for the future of the Spartan women’s tennis program.
