Schlessman, Kidder make long runs at ITA

Perkins’ Amy Schlessman and her partner Prita Kidder each made lengthy runs through the singles and doubles brackets while playing in the annual Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s Central Regional.

The longest of those runs came in the doubles bracket, where Schlessman and Kidder, an All-American tandem, took a bye through the first round and went on to defeat their next three opponents. That got them a spot in the semifinal, but once there the Kenyon duo was eliminated by the eventual champions, Kendra Higgins and Chrissy Hu from the University of Chicago. Kidder’s and Schlessman’s spot in the semifinal round made them the first Kenyon pairing to play that deep into the regional tournament since 2002.

In singles play, Schlessman forged into the fourth round of the singles bracket before being eliminated by the No. 2-seeded Janelle Arita from DePauw. For the tournament, Schlessman was 2-1 in singles and 3-1 in doubles.
