Winning streaks happen with considerable frequency in athletics. However, the women's tennis team is in the middle of a streak spanning over 20 years, and their most recent win awarded the team their 22nd consecutive New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) title this Saturday.
This weekend posed the biggest challenge of the season for both the men's and women's tennis teams. The Lions made the trek to William Smith College in upstate New York to participate in the Wilson-Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Northeast Championship and represented the College well, advancing into the later rounds of play.
The College's women's tennis team extended its impressive New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) winning streak to 101 straight victories this week with a win against Ramapo College (3-1). This NJAC streak began over 20 years ago in 1982.
The Roadrunners were not able to be victorious in a single match against the Lions, who concluded the day going 9-0 in doubles and singles play.
The men's and women's tennis teams started off the season with a bang this weekend at the Lion's Fall Kickoff Tournament.
The College squared off against New York University (NYU) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in both singles and doubles action.
