Bryn Mawr Throttles Shippensburg in Overwhelming Victory

Caroline Horvatits plays in spring 2018

BRYN MAWR, Pa. - The Owls tennis team took the court Monday afternoon against Shippensburg, and Bryn Mawr simply proved unstoppable. The Owls started the day down 0-2 due to being down a player, but that didn't stop Bryn Mawr from winning all seven matches on the court and easily claiming a 7-2 lead. Each and every Owl in action performed brilliantly on the day, and the most games an Owl lost in any set was four.

The domination started in doubles, where Amalia and Mia Parrish paired up and earned an 8-1 win. The sisters made hardly any errors in their match at the top spot, and they hit plenty of winners en route to their win. Caroline Horvatits and Audrey Camacho had equally smooth sailing at second doubles, with that duo earning an 8-1 win.

Camacho continued her reigning Centennial Conference player of the week form in singles. The first-year played almost flawless tennis, and that allowed her to bagel her opponent in second singles, 6-0, 6-0. Mia Parrish played equally as well at third singles, also collecting a dominating 6-0, 6-0 win. Amalia Parrish was in a back-and-forth fight in the opening set of the top singles match. However, Parrish used a late break of serve to collect a 6-4 win of that first set, and then she easily coasted to a 6-1 win in the second to earn the point. Caroline Horvatits battled through some tough circumstances and a strong Shippensburg opponent to earn a 63-, 6-1 win. And Christina Xue capped off the Owls win with a solid 6-1, 6-0 win at fifth singles.

The Owls will be right back in action later this week with their final match of the fall. Bryn Mawr will look to make it a clean 3-0 fall season when they travel to Arcadia on Thursday afternoon for a 3:30 PM match.
