POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – Three members of the Connecticut College women's tennis team combined to record five victories in singles and doubles action at a two-day tournament hosted by Vassar over the weekend.
Freshmen Alexis Tsang (Wellesley Hills, Mass.) and Brooke Scully (Winchester, Mass.) made a big splash in their collegiate debuts by triumphing in all three of their singles matches and earning a pair of doubles wins. Tsang defeated Ava Sweeney, Jenna Grandville and Cielle Pappalardo from New Paltz in straight sets, while Scully soundly defeated New Paltz's Courtney Koran, 6-1 and 6-0, before rallying to beat Vassar's Ashley Fair by scores of 4-6, 6-0 and 10-2. She won her third match over Sarra Yekta of Vassar by retirement.
Tsang and Scully teamed up with sophomores Paige Braithwaite (Skillman, N.J.) and Meredith Kenny (Phoenix, Ariz.), respectively, to register two doubles wins as well. The two pairs defeated opponents from NYU, New Paltz and Vassar.
Sophomore Skylar Morgan (Pittsburgh, Pa.) joined Tsang and Scully as a five-time winner. She recorded singles victories over New Paltz's Alex Chimenti, Koran, and Pappalardo and dominated many of the same Hawk student-athletes with doubles partner Mariah Warren (McLeansville, N.C.).
Another notable effort over the two-day event was made by veteran Emily Migliorini (North Haven, Conn.). The senior triumphed three times in singles play by earning wins over NYU's Rupa Ganesh, New Paltz's Trinity Chow and Vassar's Melina Stavropoulos. Migliorini also paired up with freshman Allison Falvey (Wakefield, Mass.) to take down Morgane Flournoy and Stravropoulos by an 8-6 decision in doubles play.
Connecticut College will play at home for the first time this fall when it entertains Albertus Magnus on Friday afternoon at 3 p.m.
