Women's Tennis Takes Three Points in Opener at Becker

Women's Tennis Takes Three Points in Opener at Becker

LECIESTER, Mass. -- Mount Ida was dominant at the top of the lineup, winning both their top singles matches and their #1 double point, but it was not enough to stop them from dropping a 6-3 decision to host Becker College in their 2016 women's tennis opener at Leicester Middle School. 

The Mustangs (0-1) were led by sophomore Rebecca Levy (Plymouth, Mass.), who won 6-4, 6-3 at number one singles, and sophomore Jenna Jaraman (Auburn, N.Y.), who earned a 6-3, 6-0 win at number two.

The tandem also paired together for an 8-4 win at the number one doubles position. 

The Hawks of Becker (1-0) were led by sophomore Jessica Leger (Auburn, Mass. / Auburn), who won a thrilling 2-6, 6-4, 10-5 result at number three singles over Katlyn Jesse (Marshfield, Mass.) after teaming with junior Dana Mahan (Manville, R.I. / Lincoln) to win at number two doubles, 8-6. Mahan was an 6-3, 6-3 winner at number four singles.

Becker will be back on the court on Monday when they travel to MCLA to take on the Trailblazers. Mount Ida will be at Nichols College next Saturday.
