There will be no Golden State Athletic Conference Women’s Tennis Tournament Championship repeat for No. 2-seeded (#11) Westmont Women’s Tennis (11-12), as the Warriors fell 5-3 to top-seeded and eighth-ranked Vanguard (16-8) in Thursday’s final.

Despite the loss, the Warriors are expected to receive an at-large invitation to the 34th Annual NAIA National Women’s Tennis Tournament that will be held May 13-17 in Mobile, Alabama.

“Even though we lost, it was clear that our team came prepared with the confidence and belief that they could win,” articulated Westmont head coach Kendyll McManigal. “Losing is never what we intended, so it makes you churn, but our team fought until the very end and played the entire match as if we were going to pull it out.”

On a sizzling day in Indian Wells, No. 2-seeded (#11) Westmont Women’s Tennis (11-11) had their racquets a blaze en route to a resolute 5-0 Golden State Athletic Conference Women’s Tournament Semifinals victory over No. 3-seeded (#14) Concordia (8-11).

With the win, the Lady Warriors are now poised to face the conference’s top seed, ninth-ranked Vanguard (15-8), in tomorrow’s championship match, starting at 9 a.m.

The day began with a maroon and white sweep of doubles competition. To commence the action, Westmont’s No. 3 pair, composed of Emily Keach and Grace Davis, made quick work of Caitlyn Uzzi and Kristin Lampe, winning 8-2.

Women’s Tennis Weathers the Storm, Earns Second Seed

#11 Westmont Women’s Tennis has secured a first-round bye in this upcoming week’s GSAC Women’s Tennis Championship

By Jordan Wyatt:

The Lady Warriors of #11 Westmont Women’s Tennis (10-11, 8-2 GSAC) have concluded their vigorous and challenging 2014 regular-season slate in winning fashion by knocking off four of their last five opponents.

From their initial match to their last, the squad’s schedule was riddled with competitive contests. In total, Westmont faced off with nine ranked sides and participated in matches with three teams from each division of the NCAA (I, II and III).

First-year Westmont head coach Kendyll McManigal does not discourage the strenuous nature of the team’s schedule, declaring that it galvanizes her squad by creating new enthusiasm for each match.

Same Venue, Different Story

Three days after a heart-breaking 5-4 defeat to the Golden State Athletic Conference’s top team, the Lions of ninth-ranked Vanguard (10-7, 7-0 GSAC), #11 Westmont Women’s Tennis (7-10, 5-2) once again traveled south to take the court at the Costa Mesa Tennis Center.

Pursuing their first victory since March 20, the Warriors much desired a positive result. Although revenge was left unserved versus the Lions Saturday, this day would be different.

Tuesday’s competition against the #13 Eagles of Concordia (6-8, 5-3) proved to be just what Kendyll McManigal’s women were in search of. When all matches were accounted for, the Warriors had blazed past the Eagles 8-1, exceeding their 6-3 victory against CUI at home on February 15.

Following a Westmont Men’s Tennis match that lasted for 5 hours and 17 minutes, two undefeated Golden State Athletic Conference Women’s Tennis squads, the #12 Warriors and ninth-ranked Vanguard, clashed at the Lynn Abbott Tennis Courts in Santa Barbara for a vital league match-up.

However, it was the Lions (7-7, 5-0 GSAC) who remained unbeaten Monday afternoon, winning 5-3 and breaking the two-way tie at the top of the standings as the Warriors (6-8, 4-1) wavered in singles play after acquiring a 2-1 advantage upon the completion of doubles competition.

Leading off the day, third-ranked* Lauren and Kate Stratman served up another doubles victory, striking down Vanguard’s seventh-ranked pair on the number one court. The Stratman sisters now sit at 7-5 on the season.

The Lady Warriors of Westmont Women’s Tennis (6-7) held fast to the #12 spot in the latest edition of the 2014 NAIA Women’s Tennis Coaches’ Top 25 Poll, released this past Tuesday, March 18.

On Thursday, Kendyll McManigal’s squad proved worthy of their impressive status, as the Warriors defeated a formidable NAIA opponent in (received eight top 25 votes: tied at #32) McPherson (Kan.) (5-4), 8-1.

“Thursday’s competition marked the beginning of a streak of NAIA matches for us, so performing well was important for us to keep moving in the right direction in the rankings,” indicated McManigal. “We overcame some challenges on the day, but I’m most proud of our mental wins. Communication stayed strong in doubles, the girls kept their energy up all day, and they executed well.”

Closer Than You Think

Westmont Women’s Tennis, ranked at #12 in the NAIA, traveled south Wednesday to take on the Cougars of former Golden State Athletic Conference rival #16 (NCAA Division II) Azusa Pacific (7-1).

Even though the Warriors (5-4, 4-0 GSAC) ended up dropping the match 8-1, the contest was much more competitive than the final results indicate. Additionally, the event lasted four hours before all racquets were laid to rest.

The Cougars swept doubles, but the sisters Stratman – sophomore Lauren and freshman Kate – held an early advantage in the number one slot before falling 8-4. Sophomores Jessica Cedillo and Haley Strandness also lost a tight match, succumbing 8-5 at number two doubles.
