Case Edges Wooster in Closely-Contested Match

Northeast Ohio rivals Case Western Reserve University and College of Wooster were evenly matched on the women's tennis court late Friday, but it was the Spartans who were able to prevail by a 5-3 count in Cleveland, Ohio.

The two teams split the six singles matches, with Case Western Reserve (2-11) winning all three in the top half of the lineup and Wooster (3-8) exhibiting its superior depth with a sweep of the lower half. Scot freshman Kelsey Jenkins had the easiest time, defeating her opponent 6-0, 6-1 at No. 4, while teammates Erin Bauer and Boo Flynn also won in straight sets at No. 5 (6-4, 6-2) and No. 6 (6-4, 6-4), respectively.

Wooster nearly scored another point, as Elissa Lauber dropped a tough three-setter to Marta Worwag at No. 1 singles – 4-6, 6-3, 1-0 (10-5).

The Spartans clinched the victory via 8-2 and 8-5 decisions at first and second doubles, respectively, and with the outcome determined, third doubles did not finish.
