WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – In her first collegiate tennis match, sophomore Devinity Apollon (District Heights, Md./School Without Walls) proved to be the difference as she picked up a crucial win at No. 2 singles as the Lycoming College women’s tennis team picked up a 5-4 opening-season win over Mt. Aloysius in a steady drizzle at Bruce Henry Park on Saturday, Sept. 2.

After a nearly 90-minute rain delay, Apollon posted a 6-1, 7-5 win at No. 2 singles over Joselyn Walters.

Fellow sophomore Hannah Summerson (South Williamsport, Pa./South Williamsport) also picked up a big win, earning the 6-2, 6-1 win over Emily Goldyn at No. 1 singles.

The Warriors dropped two of the three doubles matches, with the lone win coming from the junior duo of Kimberleigh Parroccini (Warren, Pa./Warren Area) and Brittany Lenze (St. Mary’s, Pa./Elk County Catholic), an 8-2 decision over Alexis Brisko and Ashley Stough at No. 3 doubles.

But in singles play, Lycoming began to climb back as they took four of the six matches.

While Summerson and Apollon were taking care of their matches, senior Kaitlin Hallabuk(Towanda, Pa./Towanda) took a 7-5, 6-2 decision at No. 3 singles over Katelynn Arnold. Parroccini, earning her second win of the match, won 6-2, 6-2 over Alexis Brisko at No. 5 singles.
