ADRIAN, Mich. – It didn't start well for the Adrian women's tennis team (3-1), who went down 2-1 after their doubles matches, but they prevailed after taking five of six singles matches to beat visiting Cornerstone University (1-7-1), 6-3, Friday afternoon.
Jordenne Ferenczi won both in singles (6-4, 6-2) and doubles (8-3) and her two-point swing helped sway the final score in Adrian's favor. Another highlight of the afternoon was Jordyn Grant's rally to win her match; 6-7 (5-7), 7-5, 10-7.
"I am extremely proud of how the girls responded after falling behind in doubles. They came out and really battled for each singles win and had a great team victory. Jordyn Grant stepped up with a great match after dropping the first set. She never gave in and had one of her best matches of the fall season," said head women's coach Adam Albertsen.
Other singles winners were Arielle Williams in first singles (6-2, 6-1), Justine Hanson in fourth singles (6-2, 6-2), and Morgan Spencer, who after winning her first set, 6-1, sealed the match when her opponent could not continue due to injury.
In doubles, Fernczi teamed with Kienitz for the win at second doubles, while the pairings of Williams and Spencer, as well as Khem and Hanson, were not as fortunate bowing, 6-8.
The team's next match is home on Saturday, Sept. 29th at 12:00 p.m. against Captial.
