The Columbia College tennis team lost to Bluefield College from Bluefield, Virginia, March 1.

The Rams defeated the Koalas, although the Koalas played a hard-fought game.

“I really like a challenge. I like going against people who are ranked higher than me, so I can challenge myself to do better,” Bethany Frazier, a first-year elementary education major, said.

“We practice two to three hours every day to prepare for games,” Anastasiia Pavlyeujova, a Bluefield College sophomore and a business administration and communication major, said.

The scores for the doubles matches were 8-0 for Caitlyn Wolf and Mary Curtis Twitty and 8-6 for Sanja Pantelic and Michelle Troup.

Sanja Pantelic lost both of her singles matches with scores of 6-0 for each match. Wolf also lost both of her singles matches with scores of 6-3 for both. Michelle Troup lost her singles matches 6-4 and 6-1. Twitty tied resulting in another match; however, she lost 6-10. Miranda Brown lost her singles matches 6-1 and 6-2.

The tennis team leans on each other for support throughout the matches.

“I keep myself calm by talking to my teammates. The encouragement from my teammates always helps me not stress so much,” Rebekah Ravago, a sophomore biology major, said.

The Columbia College tennis team will go on to compete in the Spring Break Tournament, March 6, in Orlando, Florida.
