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.
The Cornerstone women's tennis team travelled to Judson University today, and fell by the score of 7-2. After missing the first 3 matches with a broken wrist, Heidi Boesl returned to action today, and won her first match at #3 Singles by the score of 6-1, 6-2. At #4 Singles, Ashley Greene won 6-1, 6-1 to wrap up the winning for Cornerstone.
Up next for Cornerstone is the very important Night of Nets match against Bethel College on Friday September 26 at 2:30 pm at Northpointe Christian High School. Night of Nets is becoming a CU tradition and is sweeping to schools all over the country to raise funds to stamp out malaria. Malaria kills over 700,000 children under the age of 5 every year, but is entirely preventable simply through the use of inexpensive mosquito nets. Please join us for this match and help support this wonderful cause. For more information, please visit cunightofnets.com.
