The teams started their spring season with two 7-2 wins over Princeton yesterday.
Our men's #1 Madhav Dhingra and #2 Dylan Murray lost their matches at the top but the rest of the squad won theirs. While most matches were over in three games, Matt Roberts at #7 survived three match balls and came back to win in five games.
On the women's side, our two freshmen, Alyssa Mehta and Sue Ann Yong, both lost a game but made the necessary adjustments to win their matches in four games. Amanda Sobhy, Michelle Gemmell, Dileas MacGowan and Julianne Chu won in three games. Our women's #2, co-captain Haley Mendez, played her first match of the season against Princeton after a foot injury. She played well in patches but her opponent was too strong and beat her in three. Katie Tutrone at #3 had five match balls but wasn't able to close the match and eventually lost in five games.
The teams are looking forward to today's match against UPenn. The women start their match at noon and the men at 2pm. There will be no streaming at UPenn but we will tweet live scores on Twitter:http://www.twitter.com/
