The Middlebury women’s tennis team started off their season with two indoor games at home on Saturday. They started out the day against Brandeis, winning eight out of nine games. Five out of six of the single matches were won in only two sets. Middlebury’s number one singles player Victoria Aiello ’12 beat out Brandeis’ number one player Rachel Rosman 6-4, 6-4, while the number one doubles teams made up of Brittney Faber ’13 and Leah Kepping ’13.
Later on Saturday, the Panthers shut out Connecticut College 9-0. Sally Wilkey ’12 played in the number one singles spot and was able to beat out Connecticut College’s number one singles player, Cassie Smith 6-4, 6-1. All six of the singles matches were settled in only two matches.
The number one doubles team comprised of Faber and Kepping, let Connecticut College win only one game, beating them 8-1.
Last year, the team beat Brandeis 7-2 in the opening game of the 2009-2010 season. In the NESCAC Semifinals, the team lost to Williams 5-1 but still got a NCAA bid where they were able to advance past Bowdoin. They then played in the Regional Finals where they lost 5-1 to fellow NESCAC school Amherst.
Next weekend, the team will play Rochester at home.
