Ohio University vs. XU, LCC, UD (Ohio University, Lorraine Community College, and University of Dayton)
Seven Musketeers traveled from Cincinnati to Athens, Ohio. It was an early morning for all of us but we were determined to play tennis at a new location. On the way, we stopped at McDonald's to have team breakfast. We arrived on OU's campus and eventually located the tennis courts. University of Dayton was a tough opponent again. John Means played hard but fell to the men's singles adversary (4-6). Xavier defeated Lorraine Community College 3-2 matchs and 23-21 games, so it was very close. Lisa Daum won women's singles (6-1), Mark Liu and John Means won men's doubles (6-3), and Cara Dlugosz and Kate Evans won women's doubles (6-2). This was our second win of the year. Ohio University was also a close match, but unfortunately we lost. Kate Evans and Robert Jamieson won the singles matches and women's doubles also won. However, OU won more games than XU. Everyone played very hard. On the way home, we all stopped at Wendy's to have a team dinner. Kate Evans says, "I believe this was one of the most competitive matches Xavier Club Tennis has been in and one of the most rewarding team bonding experiences I have been a part of."
