Women’s tennis collects two more wins

The Ramapo women’s tennis team extended their winning streak this past week with two wins at home against John Jay College and Brooklyn College. The team now sits at 4-0 on the season.

Last Wednesday, the Roadrunners dominated in a 9-0 against John Jay College. They started off strong by winning all three doubles matches, allowing the Bloodhounds to score almost no points.

The singles matches are where John Jay put up a fight. In the first match, senior Melanie Brentnall narrowly won her first set against John Jay’s Sarina Moi 7-5 but came out on top in the second set easily with a 6-2 victory. 

Sophomore Nicole Graham faced a similar fate against John Jay’s Dakota Himaya during the third match. Graham won the first set 6-2 but went neck-and-neck with Himaya in the second match, ultimately securing the 7-6 win after a tiebreaker. All of the other singles matches were easy wins for the Roadrunners.

Ramapo then faced Brooklyn College on Monday, earning another 9-0 win. The Roadrunners showed no signs of struggle against the Bulldogs, winning all three doubles matches. The most action came in the first match when Brentnall and junior Mackenzie Dates defeated Brooklyn’s Veronika Tsiko and Rebecca Finney, 8-3.

The singles matches were just as successful for the Roadrunners with none of Brooklyn’s players earning more than one game in any of the sets.

The Roadrunners will next take on Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, CT on Oct. 28 at 1 p.m.
