Indiana-Wesleyan game postponed

| Thursday, March 27, 2014

The Belles’ visit to Indiana Wesleyan originally scheduled for today has been postponed due to weather, with a potential makeup date to be determined later.

Saint Mary’s (5-3, 1-0 MIAA) will be back in action as it visits Trine on Saturday for its second conference contest of the season. The Belles are coming off of a 9-0 sweep of Olivet this past weekend in their opening conference match. Senior co-captain Mary Catherine Faller and junior Kayle Sexton won their match at No. 1 doubles and their respective Nos. 1 and 2 singles without dropping a game in the victory over the Comets (0-2, 0-2).

Indiana Wesleyan (17-1) is currently ranked No. 17 in the latest NAIA Coaches’ Poll.

Belles head coach Dale Campbell said his team was focusing this week on being more aggressive during matches before taking on Trine (5-5, 1-0).

“Attacking the net in doubles is important as is playing a bit more offensively in singles,” Campbell said. “You have to be consistent regardless of the pace of play.”

The Belles are back in action when they visit Angola, Ind., on Saturday for a conference match with Trine.
