Tennis slams Colby-Sawyer
Facing Colby-Sawyer at home on Sunday, the Colby women’s tennis team gave the opposition a clinic on how to open your season. The Mules didn’t drop a set en route to a 9-0 win and a stellar opening performance.
Senior captain Mckenzie Love showed her experience, picking up two wins to lead her squad. She paired with Victoria Abel ’14 to take the first doubles match 8-4 before defeating Ashlyn Ramsay 6-3, 6-1 at second singles. Abel also did her part individually by dominating Charlotte Horton 6-2, 6-1 at third singles.
In the two other doubles matches, Colby was able to assert their dominance as well. Captains Sarah Wiener ’13 and Sally Holmes ’13 combined to take out Donna Gordon and Ashlyn Ramsay 9-8 before Alex McAuliff ’13 paired with Holly Bogo ’16 to secure a 7-5 win over Charlotte Horton and Oxana Tkachenko.
Three of those four Colby players weren’t done making contributions, however. Wiener won her singles match 6-1, 6-2 in the number one spot, which allowed her to settle in and comfortably watch her teammate Holmes defeat Claire Toffey 6-2,6-3. Bogo overpowered Gordon 6-2, 6-3 and Erica Talamo ’15 walked away with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Tkachenko.
