The Hamilton College women's tennis team wrapped up its spring trip Friday, splitting a pair of matches in Orlando, Fla. The Continentals lost 7-2 to nationally ranked No. 31 Kenyon College then bounced back to beat Schreiner University 6-3

Hamilton is now 6-3. The Continentals went 3-1 on their spring trip.

Jane Haffer '19 led Hamilton with three wins on the day. She had a hand in both Continental points against Kenyon, sweeping her third singles opponent and teaming with Winnie Tang '17 for a win at first doubles. Haffer dropped just one game in claiming a singles victory against Schreiner. She's now 10-5 in singles play this year.

Tang improved to 7-7 with a second singles sweep in the Schreiner win. Claire Keyte '17 and Samantha Weeks '19 were double winners in that match; they posted straight-set victories at first and fourth singles, respectively and posted a win at second doubles. Their record in doubles play is now 9-7. Keyte owns a 7-7 singles mark while Weeks is 9-5. The pairing of Iona Forrester '20 and Claudia Morse '19 won at third singles.

Hamilton is back in action Saturday, March 26, hosting Rochester Institute of Technology in a noon match.
