AMHERST, MA – The New England Women's Intercollegiate Tennis Tournament ended today.  Williams concluded the tournament with a number 1 finish in the B flight and a second place finish in the A flight.

In the A flight, Williams 2, duo of Kathleen Elkins and Maria Pylypiv, defeated 2nd ranked Middlebury 3-0.  The match was hard-fought, as the pair pulled out a comeback victory in doubles, and both singles matches went into super-tiebreakers.  Elkins and Pylypiv, unfortunately, lost in the Finals to number 1 ranked Amherst.  The other Williams pair of Alotta and Curren were defeated in the Semis by the winning Amherst team. 

In the B flight, Monica Pastor and Lindsay Thygesen lived up to their number one ranking by winning the B flight Finals against Middlebury.

 After the successful weekend, coach Alison Swain was proud of her team and the result, "this weekend was a great demonstration of Williams tennis by everyone."
