Other than an 8-1 loss to top-ranked Emory University, the women’s tennis team was perfect over spring break, finishing with a 4-1 record. The Mammoths won crucial victories over three ranked opponents, winning matches against 21st-ranked Kenyon College, 10th-ranked Carnegie Mellon University and 12th-ranked Washington University in St. Louis. Given their previous success, the Mammoths were ranked third in the nation in last week’s polls behind Emory and the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps College Athenas.
