Stars Defeat Greenville, Edged By Baker On Saturday

Seniors Dina Kaissi and AMC Tennis Player of the Week Chelsea Cross finished perfect on the weekend

COLUMBIA, Mo. - Taking advantage of the wonderful weather on Saturday, the Stephens College tennis team spent the morning and afternoon out on the courts in a tri-match with Baker University and Greenville College. The Stars earned their third win of the season with a 5-4 victory over Greenville before falling to Baker in a closely-contested 5-3 decision.

Against Greenville, the match came down to the wire and it was Gracie Strawn at No. 4 singles that pulled through for the Stars. In nailbiting fashion, Strawn won a tiebreaker [10-6] to give Stephens its gamewinning point.

In addition to No. 1 doubles, the Stars recorded wins at the Nos. 1-4 spots versus the Greenville Panthers.

Against Baker, both Dina Kaissi and reigning AMC Tennis Player of the Week Chelsea Cross completed the weekend with flawless records at No. 1 doubles and in singles action.
