Women's tennis results

This weekend the women's tennis team kept their post-season hopes alive by handily defeating Waterloo 6-1.

"It was a very good victory and an all-round team effort," said Western head coach Dave Mitchell.

Katey Black continued her season-long undefeated streak by winning 6-3, 4-6, 6-3.

First-year player Taline Huisman debuted with an impressive 7-5, 6-3 victory. "I was scared," Huisman said, of her first varsity match. "I didn't know what to expect."

"It was an incredible feat for her," Mitchell said.

Western will need to win their final two matches as they travel to Kingston in two weeks to face University of Toronto and Queens, last year's Ontario University Athletics champions. "We'll definitely need to win to have a chance to make the playoffs," Mitchell said.

Huisman said the team is confident of its chances. "We know we're going to win our next two games," she said.
