HUNTINGDON, Pa. -- The Juniata College women's tennis team played its final home match of the 2009-10 season on Friday afternoon, dropping a 7-2 loss to Lebanon Valley College on the Raffensperger Tennis Courts.

Juniata (8-9) with a win at no. 1 doubles by Katie Healy (Pittsburgh, Pa./Mt. Lebanon) and Maggie Wolenter (Audubon, N.J./Audubon) over the Leb Val tandem of Sarah Grodzinski and Shayna Heintzelman, 8-4. The loss was the first of the season for the Dutch's no. 1 doubles team of Grodzinski/Heintzelman, who entered today's match with a 13-0 record.

That success didn't carry over to singles, however, as Juniata was able to pick up just one more point. Rachel Adams (McLean, Va./Jakarta Int'l School) notched a 6-1, 6-0 decision at no. 6 singles, evening her singles record for the season at 6-6.

Stacie Beegle (Schellsburg, Pa./Chestnut Ridge) came closest to adding a third point in the Juniata column, taking Lebanon Valley's Tamara Lobb to a supertiebreaker in no. 3 singles before falling 5-7, 6-2, 10-3.

Juniata's final match of the season against Catholic University of America, previously scheduled for Saturday, April 24, has been postponed due to the threat of inclement weather in the Washington, D.C., area. The exact make-up date for the match has not yet been determined.
