AMHERST, Mass. - The UMass women's tennis team won five of six singles matches and two of three doubles matches en route to a 6-1 win over Saint Joseph's on Sunday afternoon at the Bay Road Tennis Center. The win improves the Minutewomen to 3-1 in dual matches this year with UMass returning to action next Saturday at Harvard.

Yuliana Motyl and Chantal Swiszcz teamed up to defeat Casey Robinson and Kristina Eisenbrand 8-4, while Sonia Bokhari and Chanel Glasper defeated Lauren Roy and Aurora Davis 8-5.
