Women’s tennis finds their stride

Since the last publication of The Hoot, the Brandeis tennis teams have each competed in four matches. The women went 3-4 while the men were unable to win any of their matches against the opposing teams. 

Starting off on the women’s side, they first faced a fellow University Athletic Association (UAA) conference team, the New York University (NYU) Violets. The Judges outscored the Violets 5-2 which was a sizable accomplishment, especially for the UAA tournament seeding process. The five wins the Judges collected were through two doubles matches and three singles matches. 

Following their UAA matches, the Judges faced Wellesley College on April 7. They won over the Blues 7-2. The Judges won every one of their three doubles matches and then five of their six singles matches. This was the second consecutive team that Brandeis beat after being seeded behind them going into the match. 

After nearly a week off of competition, the Judges won for the third time in a row. This time, they hosted Skidmore College. The Judges won by a small margin, only winning one more match than Skidmore. Most impressive during this match was that the Judges swept the doubles matches in an exciting manner. 

In the women’s final game recap of this article, they most recently traveled to our neighbor, Babson College, where they unfortunately fell 3-6 against the Beavers. Unfortunately, the Judges were not able to keep up with the #20 ranked Babson after only winning one of the doubles matches. 

Looking ahead for the women’s team, they will host Endicott College on April 21 before heading to Altamonte Springs, Florida for the UAA Championships. 

On the men’s side of things, they were unfortunately not as successful. They ultimately fell 4-5 to NYU, 4-5 to the Coast Guard Academy, 3-6 to Mary Washington University, and 2-7 to Babson College. Though the men’s team did not come away with any wins, they only lost by a very small margin in their first two competitions.

Looking ahead for the men’s tennis team, they will travel to Medford to face the Tufts University Jumbos on April 20. Following that final non-conference match, the men will join the women in Florida for the UAA Championships from April 25 to April 27.
