Bruins-Bearcats Suspended by Rain after Doubles Play, to be Completed on Sunday
NEWBERG, Ore. - With the doubles completed and George Fox University ahead 2-1, rain washed out all of the singles early in the first sets and forced a postponement of the Northwest Conference women’s tennis match between the Bruins and the Willamette University Bearcats Wednesday afternoon here at the GFU campus courts.
The match will be resumed at George Fox this coming Sunday at 11:00 a.m. With a few games completed, action will be picked up from the point at which each of the singles matches was halted.
Playing on their real home courts for only the second time this spring, the Bruins won the No. 1 doubles 8-2 as Molly Beaumont and Shaina Inn downed Shannon Palmer and Sabrina Gutierrez, and the No. 3 doubles 9-7 with Bethany Nguyen and Marissa Chau prevailing over Hailey Arnold and Emily Funabiki. The Bearcats took the No. 2 doubles 8-4, Emily Bee and Denise Poltavski defeating Alyssa Emoto and Cara Griffith.
