Ramapo’s third match of the week was a loss dealt by St. Mary’s College of Maryland, 6-3. In the singles competition, Sabrina Koropchak, Biss and Biunno all recorded wins for the Roadrunners.

The final match of the Spring Fest Tournament and the final match for women’s tennis featured a loss from Concordia University, 8-1. with Bliss earning the lone victory.

When asked about the tournament, head coach Raza Baig said that missing players was a big factor in all of the losses.

“The men’s team did well even though we were missing two of our top players who couldn’t travel,” stated Baig. “The women’s team struggled as we didn’t have four of our top six. Our main season is in the fall.” The lady Roadrunners went 13-1 in the fall.

Baig is looking to repeat an impressive last season, where the Roadrunners won their third straight conference title and had their first ever NCAA appearance.

“We may not be as deep as last year but our top of the order is strong enough to bring us another title,” Baig said.

The men’s team returns to action next Thursday when Yeshiva University will come to Ramapo.
