In a season full of wins and close losses, former Husky tennis player Ivey Tant finished her junior season at Lenoir-Rhyne University.
Tant competed as a two-seed in 10 matches, a three-seed in four matches and as the number one seed in a match on March 5 at Barton College.
The junior finished the year with three victories in her 15 singles matches. She defeated Allison Bean of East Stroudsburg 6-2, 6-4 on March 10 and followed that up with a win over Kirby Mustard from Concord, winning the first set 6-4 before her opponent retired in the second set.
Tant finished the year on a high note with a 6-0, 7-5 win over Belmont Abbey’s Katharine Miller in the final match of the season.
As a team, Lenoir-Rhyne finished the season with a 2-13 overall record.
The former Husky also competed in several doubles matches throughout the season. She captured an 8-4 victory against Concord alongside teammate Kelsey Love.
Tant took some tough losses as well, just losing a game here or there that changed an entire match. She lost close doubles matches to teams from East Stroudsberg, Barton, Mount Olive, Catawba and Carson-Newman, all by three games or less.
