Women's Tennis Sails Past Trinity 9-0

MIDDLETOWN, Conn.— Wesleyan's No. 4 women's tennis team earned their eleventh win of the season on a sunny Wednesday afternoon, taking care of business against Trinity with a 9-0 victory.  The Cardinals were dominant from start to finish, getting out to a big start with a doubles sweep and showing no signs of a let up during the singles, taking all six matches in straight sets. With the win, the women move to 6-1 in NESCAC play on the season as they head into the final weekend of the regular season.

DOUBLES HIGHLIGHTS

  • Venia Yeung and Polina Kiseleva moved up into the #1 position for the first time, and despite going down an early break, the Northeast eighth-ranked duo fought back well, taking their match 8-5.

  • Also moving up a spot were Alissa Nakamoto and Alexis Almy, who were completely unfazed by the lineup change in a 8-2 win.

  • At #3, freshman Megan Tran and sophomore Daniela Alvarez also contributed to the doubles sweep with a very clean match, winning 8-2 as well.

SINGLES HIGHLIGHTS

  • Yeung was relentless at #1, not dropping a single game in a 6-0, 6-0 win.

  • At #2, #3, and #4, the Cards comfortably took care of business, with Kristina Yu, Almy, and Nakamoto all winning in straight sets, dropping only two games each.

  • Finishing things off was Alvarez at #5 and Zoe Klass-Warch at #6, both of whom sailed to straight set wins. Alvarez won 6-2, 6-1 while Klass-Warch was victorious by a 6-1, 6-0 score.
