AMHERST, Mass. - The University of Massachusetts women's tennis team defeated UConn 6-1, to improve its record to 2-0 for the fall season.

In the doubles matches, the #2 team of sophomore Dorothy Iwanowicz (Weymouth, Mass.) and freshman Christine Liehr (Stuttgard, Germany) defeated Christine Borek and Ashley Petruzzi, 8-3. In the #3 doubles, senior Susan Hyams (Cincinnati, Ohio) and junior Sasha Edelstein (Haifa, Israel) downed Jen LoRusso and Christy Lazar, 8-4, to earn the doubles point for the Minutewomen.

In singles action, the Massachusetts women were dominant, winning five of six matches. In #2 singles, senior Jenny Munroe (Valencia, Calif.) defeated Alison Adamski 6-2, 6-3. In the #3 slot, Liehr took down LoRusso, 6-1, 6-1. In the #4 match, Edelstein tallied another Minutwoman point by downing Borek, 6-0, 6-3. In the #5 singles match, freshman Elizabeth Conyer (Paducah, Ky.) continued her winning streak against UConn, defeating Petruzzi, for the second straight time, 6-0, 6-4. Sophomore Jana Bartoloni (Charlestown, Mass.) closed out the scoring for Massachusetts, defeating Lazar, 7-5, 6-1.

The Minutewomen lost only two matches on the day. The first of which took place in the doubles, as the team of junior Stephanie Price (Columbia, Mo.) and Munroe lost a hard fought battle to Whitney Simcik and Adamski, 8-9, in the #1 slot. Price again fell victim to Simcik in the #1 singles, but not without another solid effort, taking it to a third set tiebreaker, before falling 4-6, 6-3, 4-10.

UMass will be in action next on Tuesday, Oct. 14, as they host local rival Williams, at the Upper Boyden Courts, at 3:00 p.m.
