Highlights from Hamilton Match

Williamstown, MA – Back on home courts for the first time this season, the Ephs (15-0/5-0 NESCAC) swept their back-to-back matches against Hamilton (8-6/1-4 NESCAC) and Trinity (8-5/2-3 NESCAC) today.  Williams won both matches 9-0, maintaining their perfect 15-0 record.

Consistency has been a theme throughout the Ephs spring campaign, and was certainly on view today.  In doubles against Hamilton, Williams lost only won game, winning three matches 8-1, 8-0, 8-0 respectively.  The story was much of the same in singles.  Kara Shoemaker, Kathleen Elkins, Rebecca Curran and Hannah Atkinson each won their matches 6-1, 6-0; while Monica Pastor and Annika Trapness won theirs 6-2, 6-0 and 8-1, respectively.

Later in the day, Williams played Trinity with a slightly different line up, although it was very similar to the one used yesterday.  Elkins and Pylypiv, who did not play earlier, were slotted in the number 1 spot to take on Melita Ferjanic and Morgan Feldman.  They won their match 8-2.  The closest Trinity came to claiming a victory was in the number 3 spot in doubles.  Hannah Atkinson and Maya Hart persevered and earned a W, winning 8-6.
"We played very determined tennis today. It was a good day to celebrate Williams tennis on our home courts," said coach Alison Swain.

The Ephs are home against next week, when they take on MIT at 3:30pm.
