NEW LONDON, Conn.— The No. 5 Wesleyan University women's tennis team flew past Connecticut College on Wednesday, topping the Camels 8-1 for its tenth win of the season to improve to 10-2 overall and 6-2 in the NESCAC. With the loss, Conn. College dropped to 3-8 and 1-5.
In doubles, senior Eudice Chong and junior Victoria Yu had no trouble at No. 1, notching their team-leading eleventh win of the spring with an 8-0 victory. At No. 2, the newly formed team of sophomore Julia Kim and freshman Alissa Nakamoto looked great in their first action together, rolling to an 8-4 win, and at No. 3, another newly formed combo—freshmen Daniela Alvarez and Zoe Klass-Warch—also had no problems, taking the match 8-4.
Singles was similarly straightforward for Wesleyan. Chong, Yu, Kim, Klass-Warch, and Alvarez all won in straight sets for five more points for the Cardinals. Due to illness, the No. 6 singles match was forfeited, giving Connecticut College their only point of the match.
This weekend the Cardinals will conclude their regular season with a matchup against Colby on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Wesleyan will use the match as an opportunity to celebrate Senior Day, as it will be the last home match for seniors Eudice Chong, Helen Klass-Warch, Nicole McCann, and Aashli Budhiraja.
