After dropping its first two matches of the weekend against James Madison and Temple, the women’s tennis team capped its doubleheader Sunday with a 7-0 win against Saint Joseph’s.
Friday, the Colonials were dominated at home by James Madison, which nearly swept GW before sophomore Dorota Lysienia won at number seven singles in two games. Junior Zoe Krohn and freshman Mimi Hamling gave the Dukes their toughest doubles match of the day, forcing a tiebreaker set before falling in the number one doubles match.
Sunday, GW fell 5-2 against Temple in the first of two Atlantic 10 matches against the Philadelphia-based schools. The Colonials salvaged their trip to Philadelphia Sunday afternoon with a 7-0 sweep of Saint Joseph’s. GW didn’t drop any of the doubles matches against the Hawks, and only one singles match went more than two games.
Next up for the women’s tennis team is its final home match of the season against Longwood, set for April 2 at 10 a.m.
