MONTCLAIR, Va. – The George Washington women’s tennis team defeated local foe UMBC, 5-2, on Sunday evening at the indoor Montclair Country Club in Montclair, Va.
The Colonials (5-2) posted their fourth straight victory in the win over the Retrievers (1-7) after claiming the doubles point and picking up wins at the Nos. 1-4 singles spots.
“UMBC is a strong team and I am very pleased with the way the team competed. Everyone is learning to build off of each match and they did a great job today of managing momentum and fighting for every point,” head coach Dawn Buth said. “We will need to continue to stay mentally tough and work for every critical point as we move through the season.”
GW opened the match with the doubles point with wins at Nos. 1 and 2. The team of senior Mimi Hamling and Leah Pascarella downed UMBC’s Julia Sauer and Josefin Strange-Jonsson, 8-1, in the No. 1 match. In second-flight action, senior Dorota Lysienia and freshman Lana Robins rebounded from a 5-2 deficit to earn an 8-5 victory over Shannon Cleary and Heidi Danielsson.
In singles action Pascarella nearly blanked Aldunate at the No. 1 spot, earning a 6-0, 6-1 decision. Robins defeated Sauer, 6-2, 6-7 (4), 1-0 (10) in the No. 2 match, and Wei downed Danielsson at the No. 3 spot by set scores of 6-4, 6-3. In the No. 4 position, Hamling earned a 6-2, 6-3 win over Strange-Jonsson.
