Feb. 16, 2013
PITTSBURGH - The George Washington women's tennis team opened Atlantic 10 action on Saturday with a dominating 6-1 victory over Saint Joseph's at the indoor Alpha Tennis and Fitness in Pittsburgh, Pa.
The Colonials (3-2) swept the doubles and won five-of-six singles matches to down the Hawks (1-4) in the Buff and Blue's league opener.
"Saint Joseph's is a competitive team and it had a lot of momentum coming into today's match after nearly beating Duquesne last night," head coach Dawn Buth said. "We had great energy in doubles which set the tone for the remainder of the day. We are excited to bring the same focus and intensity to tomorrow's match."
In doubles action, GW limited Saint Joseph's to a combined four points through the three matches. The No. 1 pair of senior Mimi Hamling and junior Leah Pascarella defeated SJU's Aurora Davis and Casey Robinson, 8-2. In the second-flight match senior Dorota Lysienia and freshman Lana Robins nearly blanked Anne Marie Devlin and Lauren Roy, 8-1, and the No. 3 rookie team of Christina Carpenter and Stephanie Wei earned an 8-1 decision over Devi Jadeja and Kelly Mulquin.
Robins picked up a 7-5, 6-4 No. 2 singles victory over Davis, and Wei downed Jadeja, 6-1, 6-2, in the No. 3 match. Hamling earned a 6-1, 6-1, win at the No. 4 spot over Mulquin and Lysienia held Roy scoreless, 6-0, 6-0 at No. 5. Junior Isabella Escobar defeated Devlin, 6-3, 6-2, in the No. 6 match.
