SAINT VINCENT HALTS GENEVA PAC SUCCESS
Latrobe, PA – Two matches against Presidents’ Athletic Conference foes had Geneva’s tennis team brimming with confidence. Playing in its first season as a member of the PAC, the Golden Tornadoes had easily handled Bethany and Chatham and took a 4-2 overall record into Monday’s meeting at Saint Vincent.
The Bearcats quickly brought Geneva’s women back down to earth with an impressive 9-0 victory over the Golden Tornadoes.
Geneva fell to 4-3 overall and lost for the first time against a PAC opponent. Allison Krisza and Tess Roholt, who had previously been unbeaten in singles action this fall, each dropped their first singles decisions of the season.
Saint Vincent, which was a highly touted program as a former member of the American Mideast Conference, is clearly one of the top programs in the PAC.
Geneva will take another shot at a PAC opponent later this week when the Golden Tornadoes travel to rival Westminster on Thursday afternoon.
For the second year in a row, Geneva’s ABET-accredited engineering program placed in U.S. News & World Report’s Top 100 Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs in the nation.
