Haverford's women's tennis team beat Washington College, 5-1, Wednesday to advance to the Centennial Conference semifinals. The fourth-seeded Fords (12-8) took control from the outset with wins in all three doubles matches.
Kristen Andersen and Rachal Torg at No. 3 doubles tallied an 8-1 victory for the first Haverford point of the day. Playing at No. 2 doubles, Kate Donches and Abbey Flynn blanked Campbell McNicol and Kat Cohen, followed by Alex Ferrara and Caitlin Gallagher's 8-1 conquest at No. 1 doubles to complete the sweep of fifth-seeded Washington (10-8). The singles matches also went the Fords' way.
The Fords, ranked 20th in the Atlantic South region, head to Johns Hopkins University on Saturday to take on the top-seeded Blue Jays.
