Belles rained out, remain 5-4 on season

Joe Meixell | Monday, March 26, 2007

Still 5-4 on the season, Saint Mary’s was unable to add another win to its record this weekend due to unfortunate weather circumstances.

The Belles’ match Saturday against Indiana Wesleyan University was cancelled because of forecasted rain and a lack of indoor tennis courts.

Today, the Belles will hit the road again to face a tough conference opponent – the Knights of Calvin College.

Last year, the Belles lost 8-1 to Calvin.

Despite last year’s defeat, Belles’ coach Dee Stevenson still has faith in his team, which is currently 1-0 in the MIAA conference.

“Calvin College is not as strong this year,” Stevenson said, “And we are a bit stronger than we were last year. It should definitely be an interesting match.”

The Belles’ regular lineup will be ready to take on Calvin College with senior captain Kelly McDavitt playing number-one singles and standout freshman Camille Gebert taking the number-two spot. Together the duo will also compete in the number-one doubles spot.

The match will take place today in Grand Rapids, Mich., at 3 p.m.
