Women’s tennis loses championship to Hopkins

The women’s tennis team barely missed a Chicago Bulls circa early 90’s-style three-peat as Centennial Conference champions on Sunday, when they lost the conference final 5-4 to host Johns Hopkins, to whom they lost 5-4 in their only regular-season loss in the conference. Seniors Sonya Reynolds and Sara Sargent won their #1 and #5 singles matches, respectively, but lost their #1 doubles match 8-2. The Garnet took both numbers 2 and 3 doubles but lost four of their six singles matches to lose by a hair’s-breadth score, ceding their championship to Johns Hopkins, who receives both their first Centennial championship and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The Garnet (12-6, 9-1 CC) will now wait for an at-large bid to the NCAA’s, for which regional play begins this weekend.
