The Cornerstone men's tennis team took to the court today for a matchup with the Trojans of Taylor University. For the fifth time in their first six matches, Cornerstone raced out to a match clinching 5-0 lead. They didn't let the intensity drop even after the clinch, finishing the match 9-0.
The Cornerstone women's tennis team took to the courts Friday in its first Night of Nets match to fight malaria. The biggest crowd Cornerstone tennis has ever seen turned out to help raise money and support the team. Through the generaous donations of the crowd, enough money was raised to provide over 100 mosquito nets to those most in need. This represents 100 lives that may be saved, and possibibly an entire community that could be transformed.
In the weekend of matches, Cornerstone first fell to Bethel in a tightly contested 6-3 match. Winning for CU was Ashley Greene & Allison Rusticus in singles, as well as the doubles team of Ashley Greene & Heidi Boesl. Allison had to fight back from a first set loss to win her match in a third set tie-breaker.
On Saturday, the women took on the Taylor Trojans, and fell 9-0 in a match that was much closer than the score would suggest. Ashley Greene fought back from a first set loss to force a third set breaker, but came up just short. In the match of the day, Janie Silvers lost a first set tie-breaker, won a second set tie-breaker, but then lost the third set tie-breaker for a 7-6, 6-7, (10-6) final score in what was a wonderfully played match by both players.
This concludes the women's tennis fall season. Up next is Albion College in February.
(Lima, Ohio) The Golden Eagles opened up WHAC play today at the University of Northwestern Ohio. Cornerstone entered the game with a 5-0-2 record while UNOH entered the game with a 6-0-1 record. The Golden Eagles played a tough first half keeping the Racers off the scoreboard. The Racers dominated possession in the first half of play but the Golden Eagles kept them from getting quality chances and Allison Snowden made a nice save late in the half to keep a clean sheet. The Racers did break the ice early in the second half scoring in the first minute of play to put Northwestern Ohio up 1-0. The Golden Eagles responded with some good play after that doing a much better job of keeping the ball and creating more in the attack. Cornerstone battled to the end but couldn't find the back of the net and ended with a 1-0 loss. Cornerstone will returns to action on Wednesday night when they play Indiana Tech in Fort Wayne at 7:00 p.m.
