UPDATE: The Ephs storm it, coming from behind to present Coach Alison Swain ’11 with another National Championship. Congratulations on a well-played, tough contest (made even sweeter by taking revenge on the Jeffs for winning the NESCAC title).
Some details here.
Good luck to the woman’s tennis team, who face Amherst in Georgia today for the NCAA Division III championship. Led by Williams’s own Alison Swain ’01 (pictured above), who co-captained the team to its first national championship in 2001 and coached the Eph players to the 2008 championship in her first year at the helm, second-ranked Williams is looking for revenge against a top-ranked Amherst team that has beaten them in two of their three encounters this year, denying the Ephs the NESCAC title.
The match begins at 1 P.M. The weather is unsettled: overcast with the chance of rain increasing and temperatures starting in the 70s with the heat expected to rise until cooled by rains. The Ephs had a relatively easy semifinal against Emory yesterday morning. Chicago gave Amherst a tough fight in the afternoon.
If anyone finds a way to follow the match, please let us know. Is there anyone down there who could tweet about it?
