This Wednesday, the College womens tennis team annihilated the Ramapo Roadrunners 9-0 to score yet another New Jersey Athletic Conference victory, pushing its record to 2-0 and its consecutive win streak to 156.
Junior captains Jasmine Muniz-Cadorette and Emma Allen opened the match with an 8-0 win, while freshmen Maddy Stoner and Nadia Olesnycky won by the score of 8-3.
The third doubles match of the day, featuring sophomores Katie Buchbinder and Anna Prestera, followed suit with an 8-1 victory.
Allen commented on this aspect of her team’s play.
“Doubles matches are huge for us because they happen first, which is a huge chance for us to build momentum and make us more relaxed in singles matches,” Allen said.
Both Allen and Muniz-Cadorette praised the skill of the five freshmen on the team and commended the efforts of the veteran players for making the freshmen feel welcome on the team.
Singles action saw similar results, as Muniz-Cadorette, Buchbinder, Brittany Reedman, Allen, Stoner and Prestera all contributed to sweep the field.
“Having a positive attitude going into matches is still something we strive for,” Muniz-Cadorette said. “When your whole team has your back and is supporting you, it gives you a much more confident mindset for when you perform.”
The girls shift focus now to preparing for their home opener against Richard Stockton College on Wednesday, Sept. 10.
