This is the second year in a row that the second-seeded Alotta has made it to the finals of the singles tournament. Coach Alison Swain said "Kristin did a fantastic job.

This afternoon's loss comes on the heels of this morning's 6-2, 6-2 semi-final victory over Laura Danzig, also of Amherst. Swain "This was a great match. I don't think Kristin has ever beaten Danzig in straight sets before."

 Alotta and her partner, Nicole Reich lost 9-7 in the semifinals of the doubles tournament. Coach Swain described it as a "great match. Both teams had opportunities to close it out, but unfortunately we lost." 

kendCoach Swain was pleased with the overall wee: "It was a great opportunity for the whole team to compete and for our team to figure out where we can improve."
