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.
Geneva’s semester abroad programs include opportunities to study in Rome, China, South Africa, Japan, Spain and many more.
