Women's tennis unbeaten streak stretches to 9-0

Last Wednesday's tennis match between the Geneseo Lady Knights and the Brockport Golden Eagles was a one-sided affair.

Geneseo swept the Golden Eagles in the doubles and singles competition 9-0, improving the Lady Knights' SUNYAC record to 7-0 and resulting in Brockport's third straight loss.

Led by the powerful serve of sophomore Monica Vieth, Geneseo cruised through the match. "It was a great overall performance by our team," Vieth said. "We played great, and I'm proud of what we did today." Vieth secured a win at first singles, 6-1, 6-0, and then teamed with sophomore Julia Passik to win first doubles 8-2. Passik later took third doubles 6-0, 6-0.

Geneseo's dominance continued throughout the match as sophomores Melissa Baker and Lauren Johnson won 8-0 at second doubles. Sophomore Katie Gayvert and freshman Sarah Shields captured third doubles, 8-3. The team's lone senior Anna Lehet took a 6-3, 6-0 match at fourth singles.

"This team has a lot of depth, and with persistence we can go very far," head coach Jim Chen said. Chen has big plans for his squad, and in his constant effort to push his team has scheduled matches next spring against talented teams across the East Coast, including MIT.

Geneseo looks to stay undefeated next week as they host local rival RIT Wednesday.
