Both the men’s (2-0) and women’s (1-1) tennis teams were in action on Tuesday, and both teams emerged victorious. The women’s team dominated all afternoon, sweeping the Hartford Hawks 7-0 in the match. The men’s team also looked strong as they defeated the Hawks by a final score of 5-2. The men improved their record to 2-0, while the women picked up their first win of the season bringing their record to an even 1-1.

The match started with doubles matches for both the men and women.

The women’s team made short work of the Hawks in the doubles matches. The most impressive duo of the day came in the number 2 doubles match. Seniors Jacqueline Raynor and Ariana Launie defeated Meredith Heitland and Madeline Makings by a final score of 8-1.

Junior Sophia Dzulynski and sophomore Sydney Young won their doubles match, 8-2 giving Dzulynski her 50th career victory. The final doubles match was another convincing victory by junior Nicole Keklik and sophomore Daniella Reyes who won by a final of 8-3.

More domination came for the Bobcats over the Hawks in the singles matches. Dzulynsky continued her strong play winning the first singles match 6-4 and 6-0. Raynor also looked strong in her singles match, defeating Katie Long of Hartford 7-5 and 6-1. Sophomore Sitilia Rencheli clinched the victory for the Bobcats winning her singles match against Skyler Schaar 6-3 and 6-1. Young, Launie, and Keklik all won in straight sets to clinch the sweep for the women’s team.

The men’s team also looked strong in their doubles matches. Number 1 duo of sophomore Kei Ezaka and junior Jonas Kuwert made short work of their competition winning the set, 8-3. The two Bobcats came out firing and never took their foot off the gas against the Hawks.

The other two doubles matches for the Bobcats were not so convincing. In the number 2 match, the Bobcats sent out senior Eric Ambrosio and freshman Julian Rozenstein to face Will Drumwright and Alex Romaine of the Hawks. Ambrosio and Rozenstein would ultimately emerge victorious in a tough match winning 8-7 after the tiebreaker. In the number 3 match, senior Sebastian Barbero and sophomore Ryoma Haraguchi won their match by a score of 8-6. The victory for Barbero and Haraguchi clinched the point for the Bobcats as they won all three doubles matches.

After the doubles matches, the team began their singles matches. For the men, Ezaka continued his dominance winning his match by a score of 6-1 and 6-0. Ambrosio also looked strong in his singles match, winning 6-3 and 6-1. Rozenstein clinched the victory for the Bobcats after winning his number 4 singles match 6-2 and 6-1. Ezaka, Ambrosio, and Rozenstein all looked strong all afternoon for the Bobcats, never once letting up and dominating all day.

Both teams will be in action again this weekend looking to keep the winning ways going. The men will travel to Storrs, Connecticut to play in the UConn Invitational while the women travel to West Point, New York to take place in the Army Invitational.
