Southwestern's girls tennis team finished third in the Providence Invitational on Saturday, suffering their first loss of the season in the process.
The Lady Rebels went 2-1 on the day. In its first match, Southwestern defeated Corydon 4-1 before losing for the first time this season to Seymour, 4-1.
Southwestern came back in its final match to claim third place by defeating Providence 3-1 in a match shortened by rain.
"It was a very good experience for us today to play some very good teams," Southwestern coach Kenny Garrett said. "All the girls played well today in wet overcast conditions."
In three matches, No. 2 singles player Sarah Anderson led the way for the Rebels going 3-0 to continue her unbeaten individual season at 12-0. No. 3 singles player Cheyenne McKinley was 1-1 to put her season record at 10-1 and the No. 2 doubles team of Sydnie McKinley, Alex Drossart and Meredith Webber went 2-1 to finish second.
Rounding out the day, No. 1 singles player Abbey Garrett and No. 1 doubles team Kearstin Bruther and Jordan Worcester were all 1-2 in the invitational.
