Rhode Island College’s Women’s Tennis team continue to thrive as they creep towards the season’s halfway point. The Ladies have not yet lost a contest; out of 54 total matches (both singles and doubles) the team has only given up two matches.
The team had three contests this week against Clark University, Eastern Nazarene and Salem State University. However, the contest against Eastern Nazarene had to be cancelled due to weather.
Their first contest against Clark University included their second total match loss, but the team still held up their own. For the singles competitions, RIC’s Dayna Reilly, Grace Zangari, Katherine Braganca, Hailey Raskob and Laurel Ten Eyck all took wins. The doubles teams, which all won, included Reilly and Emily Orticerio, Isabella Romeo and Braganca and finally Zangari and Victoria Vittori.
Against Salem State, the team did not give up any matches. Laura Nastasi was the only member of the team that did not play against Clark University, but won her match against Salem State’s Cassie Morrison. This pushes the Anchorwomen forward to a 6-0 record.
The team will be away for matches on Tuesday at Bridgewater State University, and Saturday at University of Southern Maine. However, they will have a home game on Friday at 3:30 p.m.
