MADISON, Wis. – Playing in the NACC semifinals match for the second straight year, the MSOE Raiders women's tennis team tried to avoid history repeating itself. Unfortunately, the top seeded, and eventually NACC tournament champions, Edgewood Eagles toppled the Red & White by the exact score as their semifinals defeat from last season.
#5 MSOE Raiders – 0
#1 Seeded Edgewood – 5
No. 1 – Katie Clements/Cierra Smith fall to Sydney Verbauwhede/Alyssa Carew (8-2)
No. 2 – Hannah Marron/Leah Becker fall to Kai Heineman/Alicia Picard (8-1)
No. 3 – Kim Baffin/Cali Bonie fall to Marissa Wilson/Jaclyn Swift (8-0)
SINGLES RESULTS – COMPLETED MATCHES ONLY
No. 1 – Marron falls to Verbauwhede (0-6, 2-6)
No. 4 – Becker falls to Picard (0-6, 0-6)
The Raiders finished the season with 10-13 record, going 6-4 in conference to lock down a fifth place finish last fall. The below .500 record might be unimpressive, but the team has shown improvement year over year, which should continue as all but one of their eight players will return next season.
