MIT Women’s Tennis Goes 1-1

MIT Women’s Tennis played two matches in the past week, hosting Tufts on Thursday and visiting Mount Holyoke on Saturday.

The Engineers fell 7-2 to Tufts, the fifth-ranked Division III team in the nation. Michelle M. Dutt ’15 and Vynnie J. Kong ’15, playing second and fifth singles respectively, earned the only points for MIT.

The team fared better against Mount Holyoke, winning 6-3. Dutt, who played first singles, and Kong, as well as Juana C. Becerra ’15 and Hillary E. Jenny ’12, all won their singles matches. Two of the three MIT doubles teams won their matches to secure the victory.

The Engineers next host Babson on Tuesday afternoon as they look to remain undefeated against their NEWMAC opponents.
