Women's Tennis Upends Amcats for First Win

PAXTON, Mass.—The Mount Ida College women's tennis team forfeited two matches but still managed to pull off five wins to earn their first win of the 2016 season in 5-4 fashion over the AMCATS of Anna Maria College on Saturday afternoon in Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) action.

With the win, Mount Ida improves to 1-5 on the season and 1-1 in the GNAC, while Anna Maria falls to 0-5 overall and 0-2 in league play.

DOUBLES

Mount Ida took two hard-fought wins in doubles play as Jenna Jarman (Auburn, N.Y.) and Rebecca Levy (Plymouth, Mass.) downed Anna Maria's Jessica Gautieri (North Attleboro, Mass.) and Johanna Dean (Carrollton, Texas) 8-4 at the top bill. At No. 2 singles, Yuliana Chairez (Waltham, Mass.) and Katlyn Jesse (Marshfield, Mass.) held on for an 8-6 win over Laura Cabral (Fall River, Mass.) and Marrissa Leonard (Billerica, Mass.).

Due to the lack of a sixth player, the AMCATS took a default win in the third doubles slot, so the Mustangs took a 2-1 lead enter singles play.

SINGLES

The Mustangs took victories at No. 1, No. 2, and No. 5 singles to take the match. Jarman, Levy, and Chairez were all victorious in their singles pairings. Anna Maria claimed wins at No. 3 and No. 4 singles, as Cabral and Leonard both tallied victories.

WHAT'S NEXT

Anna Maria hosts Lesley on Thursday, September 29th at 3:00 p.m. at the Paxton Sports Centre. The next day, the team will travel to Bay Path for a rescheduled match. Mount Ida is also in action on Friday as they travel to Curry for a 3:00 p.m. start.
