Women’s tennis clinches upstate challenge point

Women's tennis


The women’s tennis team captured a 7-2 victory over Upstate Challenge rival, Saint Rose on Sunday. The two teams met in Albany where they faced off inside the University of Albany bubble. The unfamiliar conditions were no problem for the Lady Dolphins.

The match began with Le Moyne securing two of the three doubles points. The second doubles, sophomore pairing led by Jessica Geary won 8-1 and the third doubles pairing of Junior Kelly Falconer and Freshman Allison Jones walked away with an 8-2 victory.

In singles play, Le Moyne won five of the possible six points. With the absence of their second singles player everyone had to step up and play new positions. Geary finished first winning a solid match 6-0 6-1 at fifth singles. Then Jones finished with a score of 6-4 6-0 at fourth singles. Second singles finished winning 6-2 6-0. Sophomore Margaret La Fleur won 6-2 6-3 at third singles. Lastly, Falconer finished off the entire match victorious at the sixth singles spot, only dropping one game.

This victory pushes Le Moyne to a perfect 2-0 record for their spring season. The Ladies look to keep up their winning streak in order to clinch a spot among the top six teams in NE-10 Conference. This win also narrowed the gap between Saint Rose and Le Moyne in the year long, “Upstate Challenge.” Le Moyne is losing 5-6 with two competitions left to play.

Geary added some positive thoughts after the match. She said, “As a team, I think we played really well today. It feels really good to win our first conference match of the spring season, especially since it’s the Upstate Challenge. I’m looking forward to see how the rest of the season goes, and hoping to continue to win and further our 2-0 winning streak.”

Women’s tennis will hit the road for their next match on Saturday, March 23rd where they will face off against Assumption College at noon.
