​GVSU falls short in GLIAC Tournament

The third-seeded Grand Valley State University women’s tennis team (12-2) notched an upset victory over Northwood University in the semifinals of the GLIAC Women’s Tennis Tournament on Saturday.

The Lakers held a slim, one-point lead following doubles play, and a dominating performance in the singles flight propelled GVSU to victory.

GVSU matched up against top-seeded Wayne State University for the championship on Sunday, only to fall in a tight 5-4 match. The No. 4 singles contest decided the championship, where GVSU’s freshman Allie Sweeney fell 6-4 in the final set of her matchup to WSU’s Anne Li Briand.
