GRAND RAPIDS, MI - The Calvin College women’s tennis team earned its first MIAA victory Sat. afternoon.  The Knights defeated the Bulldogs of Adrian College 8-1 in a match played inside the Huizenga Track and Tennis Building.

Calvin got off to a slow start in doubles, but was able to win two of the three flights.  Seniors Jordan Ipema (Kalamazoo/Kalamazoo Christian) and Elise Doezema (Grand Rapids/Grand Rapids Christian) won the second doubles flight 8-6 over Jordenne Ferenczi (Niles/Brandywine) and Karen Kienitz (Hemlock/Hemlock HS).  Sophomores Ali Roode (Hudsonville/Unity Christian) and Samantha Reitsma (Grand Rapids/Northpointe Christian) defeated Jordan Grant (Taylor/Allen Park) and Justine Hanson (Fenton/Fenton HS) 8-4 at third doubles.

The Knights swept all six singles flights to win the match 8-1.  Sophomore Megan Visser (Kalamazoo/Kalamazoo Christian) picked up a victory at first singles, defeating Arielle Williams (Southfield/Birmingham Seaholm) 6-1, 6-1.  Ipema won her match at second singles 7-5, 6-2 over Morgan Spencer (Plymouth/Plymouth-Salem).

Roode, junior Bethany Zoerhof (Holland/Holland Christian) and Reitsma won their matches at third, fourth and fifth singles respectively without giving up more than two games in either match.  Doezema defeated Grant 6-4, 6-3 at sixth singles.

Calvin improves to 3-12 on the season and 1-4 in the MIAA.  The Knights return to action Apr. 20, when they travel to Olivet for a match against the Comets.
