Coming off of an exciting victory last week, tying for first with Swarthmore at the PAIAW Championships, the young but unified BMC badminton team had a chance to reclaim victory this past week winning two out of three matches in what seemed to be mirror-image play.

The Mawrters back-to-back match-ups against Swarthmore early in the week allowed Bryn Mawr to claim a solo victory twice. Bryn Mawr hosted the first of the two matches, and then traveled to Swarthmore the next day.

The change in location was about the only thing that changed in the both matches. Each time they met, Bryn Mawr ruled over Swarthmore with a score of 3-2. Match-ups remained the same - Nicole Boehner v. Jane Ng (first singles), Erin Dawson v. Siobhan Catty (second singles), Alice Gugelmann v. Karen Lange (third singles) - as did the results. Boehner defeated Ng twice, providing the only singles win for Bryn Mawr.

BMC doubles also duplicated Tuesday’s performance on Wednesday, pulling away with a total of four wins by first doubles Rachel Ticktin - Jihean Lee and second doubles Botum Chhay - Alex Glanz-Berger against their same opponents.

Unfortunately, the Mawrters managed to mirror only the score (3-2) but not the win on Thursday against undefeated Albright. Boehner lost for the first time in over a week, as did first doubles pair Ticktin/Lee. However, Gugelmann defeated her third singles opponent (11-3, 11-0), while Chhay/Glanz-Berger also emerged victorious in a three-set battle.

This match against Albright was a much fiercer battle than their last meeting back in the beginning of January when Bryn Mawr had lost to Albright 4-1; but this time the score was much closer.

Bryn Mawr’s record now stands at 3-2, a number pair which proved key for the BMC badminton team this past week.
