GW Women's Tennis Overcomes Richmond, 4-3, in Singles Battles
Nederlander Clinches at No. 3 Singles as Colonials Top Spiders for First Time Since 2010
April 6, 2014
WASHINGTON – Freshman Taylor Nederlander clinched the match at No. 3 singles as the George Washington women’s tennis team defeated Atlantic 10 foe Richmond, 4-3, on Sunday afternoon at the GW Tennis Center on the Mount Vernon Campus.
After dropping the doubles point to the Spiders (6-10, 2-2 A-10), the Colonials (7-5, 4-2 A-10) fought to win four singles matches to comeback and top their conference rivals for the first time in four years.
Richmond opened the match with the doubles point, claiming the Nos. 1 and 2 spots, to take a 1-0 lead. The No. 1 duo of senior Isabella Escobar and Nederlander fell to Melissa Kandinata and Anna Abadias Morales, 4-8, and the No. 2 tandem of freshman Allison Hansen and sophomore Lana Robins were edged, 6-8, by Brittany Boys and Katya Salas. At the No. 3 spot, sophomore Christina Carpenter and senior Leah Pascarella defeated Denny Lamachia and Elizabeth Sims in a tiebreaker, 8-7 (7).
Robins picked up GW’s first point at No. 2 singles with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Kandinata, and Iscobar won at the No. 5 spot, 7-5, 6-3, over Salas. Sophomore Stephanie Wei earned a 7-6 (5), 6-4 decision over Boys in the fourth flight to knot the score at 3-3, and Nederlander clinched the match at the No. 3 spot in a three-set battle by defeating Sims, 6-2, 6-7 (5), 6-4.
GW hits the road for Morgan State next Saturday before facing crosstown foe Howard on Sunday. First serve in Baltimore is slated for 1 p.m.
