Tennis Drops Match At Moravian In Conference Finale

(Posted October 1, 2005)

Ashley Andrews earned wins in both singles and doubles as Juniata took on conference foe Moravian.

Bethlehem, Pa.? The Juniata College women?s tennis team had its chances of earning a conference postseason berth take a serious hit on Saturday as the Eagles dropped a 7-2 decision to Moravian College in Bethlehem. Juniata falls to 7-4 overall and 2-4 in the conference with the loss, while Moravian upped its record to 11-1 and 4-1 in the Commonwealth.

The match was the conference finale for the Eagles who will now need lots of help from other teams to claim a postseason berth.

Ashley Andrews (Altoona/Altoona) and Caroline Weisser (York Suburban/York) got Juniata started with one point as the duo picked up an 8-5 win at the first doubles position. The win improved Juniata?s top doubles duo to 9-2 on the season

Andrews then had Juniata?s only point in singles as she earned a straight-set 6-2, 6-4 victory at the first singles position. Andrews tied Weisser and Molly Coursey (Westminster/Hanover) for the team lead with eight singles wins.

Juniata has one match remaining as the team will welcome Chatham next Saturday for a non-conference tilt.
