San Antonio, Texas – The Presbyterian College women’s tennis team needed to battle the elements to win their match 4-1 against Incarnate Word on Saturday. The match was delayed multiple hours due to rain in the San Antonio area and slick playing conditions.
“It was a long day of delays but Incarnate Word was great to make sure that the match got played,” said head coach Steve Brooks. “This was a very tough match. The team fought hard against a strong team.”
In singles play, Taylor won in straight sets, 7-5, 6-2, to get things started. Calais earned her second win in a three set contest, 6-2, 5-7, 6-1. Sydney Patton clinched the match for the Blue Hose after rallying from being down 3-5 in the second set after dropping the first. She took home a 1-6, 7-6, 6-4 victory on court one.
