Smith Tennis posts another win!

Smith Tennis rallied to a 6-3 victory over Wheaton College on Saturday, October 3. The win was especially meaningful because Wheaton just came off a BIG win with Wellesley ending Wellesley's 47 game winning streak in the NEWMAC conference. The Smith match was decided on court 4 as Clair Oblamski fought back in her third set from an 0-3 deficit to finally earn the win in a third set tiebreaker. Holly Reich also posted an outstanding win at number 1 singles over nationally ranked Sarah Geocaris, junior from Newport Beach, CA. Smith doubles wins were significant in this match and the doubles teams continue to improve with each match.

Smith will take to the road on Tuesday, October 6 to play Springfield College. Springfield lost a cliffhanger on Oct 3 to Babson 4-5. This fall season is very exciting and there seems to be no easy matches in the NEWMAC tennis this year.
