With the graduation of Hathaway Brown alumna Lauren Dorsey, Gilmour grad Jen Snyder remains the only Cleveland gal left on the Washington & Lee tennis team, which began the fall portion of its season last weekend in the University of Mary Washington Fall Kickoff Classic.

Snyder played in the Singles A Division and in First Doubles for the Generals last weekend.

In doubles she played with Lauren Lucas in the top spot. They won their first match over Allison Shulman and Nicole Parker from Logwood in a pro set, 8-6.

They then lost twice in the double elimination tourney by six points to a couple gals from Liberty and by two in a tie breaker to a couplet from Mary Washington.

In the top spot, Snyder was set back in both of her singles matches.

Snyder will be back in action again this weekend at the same site for the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Southeast Regional Championships.

Highland Heights native Jen Snyder

Last yearn Snyder finished 15-7 in singles. After going 3-3 in the fall, she went on a tear in the early spring, stringing together an eight-match winning streak to run her record to 11-3. All but two of those wins in that streak Snyder won in straight sets.

Playing with three different doubles partners, Snyder had a combined 10-8 record in doubles in 2009-10.

Two years ago as a freshman, Snyder was first team Old Dominion Athletic Conference, posting a 15-5 singles and 7-0m doubles mark as a college rookie. 

After going undefeated in both singles and doubles during her junior year, Dorsey completed her college career last season by going 4-1 at singles and 3-0 at doubles with three different partners.

Pepper Pike native Lauren Dorsey

All of Dorsey’s doubles matches were won by 8-0 scores in pro sets and all her singles wins were in straight sets. Her only loss was in a split set in which she showed some tenacity, coming back to win the second set, 6-3, after losing the first one 6-7, but then losing the third set in a tie breaker, 8-10.

Dorsey, a Pepper Pike native, went 5-0 in singles and 6-0 in doubles as a junior. She finished her career11-1 at singles and 13-0 in doubles in limited time, but limited or not can go through the rest of her life making the claim that she won 97 percent of every college tennis match in which she participated, which not many in any sport at any level can ditto, nor top within social function talk.

Dorsey was the MVP in lacrosse at HB her senior season and graduated with a business administration degree.

Oberlin Soccer Teams to Raise Funds for Breast Cancer; No Fund Raiser Set Yet for Prostate Cancer

Oberlin – Both the Oberlin College men’s and women’s soccer teams will be joining the fight against breast cancer tomorrow as they strive to raise funds for the Susan G. Komen Foundation during their respective matches against Earlham College. 

The men’s soccer team will be wearing special pink jerseys to honor the loss of one of their family members, Elizabeth Miller, mother of midfielder Oliver Miller-Farrell. Elizabeth Miller passed away this past spring after a five-year battle with breast cancer. She was a leader in the fight against the disease and spoke at several conferences around the country to survivors and others battling breast cancer. 

I got to know Elizabeth when we were recruiting Ollie and it was clear from the start that she was a dynamic person,” Head Coach Blake New said. “I would only see her occasionally, but when I did we had great, lively conversations and she was always concerned about others, but especially about her son. My two daughters were just instantly drawn to her, and each Parent's Weekend we would have to pry them off of Elizabeth's lap. She was a great person and so giving and loving, so we feel it is our duty to honor her by raising awareness of this disease that will affect all of us in our lifetimes." 

The women’s soccer team will also wear special pink wristbands in support of the cause. 

Donations for the Susan G. Komen fund will be accepted during both games. The men’s team will also be auctioning off their pink jerseys online in effort to raise additional funds. 

The women’s game gets underway at noon with the men’s contest to follow at 2 p.m. Be sure to wear pink as you come out to support both teams. All students who wear pink will get quadruple punches on their Yeo Zone card.

Marks was matched-up against the No. 13 seed Troy Brinker of Chicago University and was upended by the scores of 6-0 and 6-1. 

In the Kalamazoo Collegiate draw the junior pairing of Same Towne and Miles Bogner took care of the Calvin College combination of Jon Spoelhof and Vashan Wright by an 8-2 count.
