Scots Women's Tennis loses to Calvin College 6-3 on Monday afternoon

The Alma College Women's Tennis team played at Calvin College on Monday afternoon in a MIAA contest in Grand Rapids. The Knights defeated the Scots by a margin of 6-3 to improve to 1-1 in the league and 3-8 overall, while Alma is now 3-2 in the MIAA and 9-4 in 2012. 

On a day that proved to be a disappointment for the Scots, the number one doubles team of Sr. Jen Meloche (Muskegon, Mich./Muskegon West Christian) and Fr. Erin Clutter (Petoskey, Mich./Petoskey) won their match. But, the Scots were down 2-1 after doubles.

Hoping for the win in singles, it did not happen as Alma lost some matches that could have given them the victory. The visitors did come out successful on two of the competitions however, as Clutter and Jr. Katie Meloche (Muskegon, Mich./Muskegon West Christian) secured victories in the final 6-3 defeat.

Alma will host Aquinas beginning at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday afternoon.
