By Carol Matsuzaki
Team member

The women's tennis team started its fall season Friday, Sept. 17 with an excellent 9-0 victory over Wesleyan University. It was victorious yet again with a superb 7-2 win over Vassar College on Saturday, Sept. 18.The traveling squad of Captain Valerie Tan '94, Carol Matsuzaki '95, Janet Chen '94, Hana Ohkawa '94, Nicole Mitchell '94, Monica Gupta '94, and Coach Candy Royer was simply too tough for Wesleyan and Vassar to handle.

The team's first New England Women's Eight conference dual match took place at MIT last Wednesday with the Engineers dominating Worcester Polytechnic Institute, 6-0. Freddie Turner '95, Matsuzaki, Miranda Fan '95, and Seetha Ramnath '96 all turned in victorious performances from their respective singles positions. The doubles teams of Ohkawa/Chen and Mitchell/Lily Koo '97 showed magnificent teamwork as they demolished their opponents in straight set victories.

Up-and-comers Sejal Shah '95, Stacie Jenkins '97, Amy Kimura '97, and Sarah Kringer '97 look promising and will provide depth for the Engineers. The undefeated team (4-0) hopes to spend this season defending its NEW8 championship crown.
