Women’s tennis: Asbury 5, IU East 2

NEW ALBANY - The Indiana University East women’s tennis team fell 5-2 in the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference tournament quarterfinals at Indiana University Southeast.

The Red Wolves, who were the No. 6 seed for the tournament, finished the season with a 4-13 mark. Asbury, the No. 3 seed, is 11-4.

IU East senior No. 1 singles player Paige Froman (Rushville, Ind./Ball State University) was named to the all-KIAC team in a ceremony held before the match. Froman made the all-conference team for the second consecutive season.

Froman was a double winner for IU East against Asbury. Froman won in straight sets at No. 1 singles and teamed with sophomore Chelsea Helms (Centerville, Ind./Centerville High School) for a victory at No. 1 doubles. Froman and Helms rallied from a 7-4 deficit to win 9-7.

The match was stopped after the Eagles secured the fifth point required for a team win. Helms was tied at 5 in the first set at No. 4 singles, and freshman No. 5 singles player Kristian Ketron (Williamsburg, Ind./Northeastern High School) had won the first set and led in the second set when the match ended.

“Good effort against a strong Asbury team,” said IU East coach Erskine Ratchford.
