On Sunday, Hamling held both of her opponents scoreless as GW swept George Mason, 7-0. She first teamed up with junior Leah Pascarella at No. 2 doubles to down GMU’s Ashley Delaney and Maya Hicks, 8-0. Hamling capped her perfect outing at the No. 4 singles spot as she blanked the Patriots’ Kiersten Pappas, 6-0, 6-0.
