MIDDLETOWN, PA – The York College women's tennis team closed out their 2014 regular season with their third straight win as the Green and White downed Penn State Harrisburg 5-4 in Capital Athletic Conference play on Wednesday afternoon.
The Spartans improve to 4-10 overall with the win including 2-4 in the conference. The Lions fall to 3-15 overall and 0-6 in the league with the loss.

The Spartan duo of Emily Price (Hampstead, Md./North Carroll) and Emily Skutnik (Effort, Pa./Pleasant Valley) posted an 8-1 win over the tandem of Alejandra Portillo and Hillary Mataure.
