Women's tennis wraps up play at 2015 regionals
Hamilton College's Jane Haffer '19 advanced to the third round of the singles bracket at the 2015 Intercollegiate Tennis Association Women's Division III Northeast Regional Championship, which was played at the Hobart & William Smith Tennis Center from Sept. 26 to Sept. 28.
Haffer was one of the top 16 seeds in the singles draw and she lived up to that ranking by winning two matches. She breezed to a 6-1, 6-0 victory against Ramapo College's Carly Agrifolio in the first round and cruised to a 6-0, 6-2 triumph against Ithaca College's Caroline Dunn in the second round. Haffer ran into No. 8 seed Cat Crummey of SUNY Geneseo in the third round and fell in straight sets, 7-5, 6-1.
Jane Bary '19 was a 6-4, 6-7, 10-5 winner against New York University's Madeline King in an exciting first round singles match. Bary was eliminated in the second round by second-seeded Danielle Gianetti of Skidmore College.
Claire Keyte '17 and Isabella Schoning '16 won one match apiece in the singles consolation bracket after they dropped their first round matches in the main draw against players seeded in the top 16.
After a walkover in the first round, Keyte defeated the University of Rochester's Molly Goodman 8-4 in the second round. Keyte lost by the same score in the quarterfinals to Vassar College's Morgan Fitzgerald. Schoning was an easy 8-2 winner against the University of Scranton's Julia Frattaroli in the first round but suffered an 8-4 setback against Ithaca's McKinleigh Lair in the second round.
The Continentals entered a pair of doubles teams and both advanced to the second round. Keyte and Samantha Weeks '19 edged Rochester's Camila Garcia and Christine Ho in the first round, 9-7, before they were knocked out by top-seeded Madie Benn and Michelle Fuca of Skidmore.
Haffer and Lindsay Jadow '19 rolled to an 8-2 win against Ithaca's Lair and Haley Kusak in the first round but fell 8-5 in the next round against Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's Emily Laurilliard and Melanie Frank, who were seeded in the top eight.
The Hamilton women conclude the fall portion of their schedule with a non-conference match at SUNY Cortland on Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 4 p.m.
