CLINTON, NY - On day two of opening weekend, the Ephs faced Connecticut College and Hamilton. 

The Ephs used a 5 court system in their first match of the day against Connecticut College. Sophomore Sarah Willwerth (#2), sophomore Abby LeBlanc (#4), freshman Alex Pear (#6), and sophomore Cassie Deshong (#8) led the charge for the Ephs in the first round of matches. Willwerth, LeBlanc, and Pear won their matches comfortably in three games against their Camel opponents. Deshong fought hard but was met with a tough opponent and was beaten in three games. Next on for the Ephs were sophomore Julia Ward (#1), senior captain Esther Baek (#3), freshman Kathryn Wright (#5), and sophomore Adrienne Conza (#7). Feeding off of the momentum provided from the first wave, Ward, Baek, Wright, and Conza all triumphed over their opponenets in three games. 

Only a couple hours after completing their first match against Connecticut College, the Ephs were back on to face Hamilton. Using a 3 court system for this match, Baek, Pear, and Deshong were first on to battle their opponenets. Baek and Pear delivered strong three game wins. Deshong gave her opponent a good run, but was ultimately defeated in three games. Willwerth, Wright, and Conza continued the Ephs' charge with another trio of victories. Building off of the strong performances thus far, Ward and LeBlanc both beat their opponents in three games. 

Head coach Zafi Levy had this to say after the match: "We had four tough matches this weekend, but it was great to see the girls battle through and win three of them. I'm very pleased with some of the play I saw and I look forward to more matches after Thanksgiving break." 

The Ephs take on Columbia, Drexel, Tufts, and Princeton in Williamstown, MA the weekend of 11/30 - 12/2.
