Women's Tennis Back on Winning Side, Defeats Quinnipiac 5-2

HAMDEN, Conn. – Quinnipiac claimed the doubles point, but the Temple women's tennis team responded with five singles wins to earn a 5-2 win on the road on Sunday, April 7. TU improves to 6-12 on the year.
 
The Bobcats took the wins at the first and second doubles flights to carry a 1-0 lead into singles play. Jordan Batey quickly tied that up with her first match at No. 1 this season, winning 6-2, 6-1 over Rachel Cantor. After the hosts went on top again with a win at the sixth flight, it was all Temple the rest of the way.
 
Also winning were Yana Mavrina, Alicia Doms, Rebecca Breland and Maame Ama Osei. All matches were decided in straight sets except for a tough three-set battle at No. 3. Doms took the first set, 6-3, before dropping a 4-6 decision in the second. The junior rebounded with a 6-2 win in the third set for the victory.
 
TU is back in action on Wednesday, April 10, with a 3 p.m. match against Villanova at the TU Pavilion.
