Swat Tennis Falls to Hopkins in Centennial Conference Final, 5-0

BALTIMORE - The Swarthmore College women's tennis team (12-5) fell to Johns Hopkins (15-8) in the Centennial Conference championship match in five straight matches, 5-0. With the win, Hopkins picked up its fourth straight Conference title.

Senior Rachel Wallwork was leading Hopkins No. 1 player Carolyn Warren one set to none after dominating 6-0 in the first set. They were unable to finish the match due to the Blue Jays winning five matches before the finish of the No. 1 match-up.

Swat improved on last season's 5-10 record finishing the regular with 12 wins and five losses while earning a No. 9 regional ranking.  Swarthmore must now await word from the NCAA selection committee about a potential at-large bid to the NCAA Championships
