The women's tennis team traveled to Babson College on Thursday Oct. 7, and demolished yet another victim to improve its overall record to 6-0.

MIT turned in a stellar performance by not giving up a set. The team's dominance was apparent on the court as they had total control of match play. Babson was overwhelmed by MIT's excellent focus, athleticism, poise, and team spirit.

Singles players put in outstanding aggression and concentration as they easily cruised past their counterparts. Frederica Turner '95 whipped her opponent as she took a 6-2, 6-1 win. Captain Valerie Tan '94 shredded her opponent to pieces as she captured her win, 6-2, 6-1.

Carol Matsuzaki '95 rushed and crushed her way to 6-1, 6-0. Hana Ohkawa '94 completely destroyed her opponent 6-0, 6-0. Sarah Kringer '97 was tough and wiped her opponent off the court, 6-3, 6-3.

Both doubles teams were victorious and showed excellent teamwork. Nicole Mitchell '94 and Lily Koo '97 pounded their way to a most magnificent 6-2, 6-2 win. Monica Gupta '94 and Miranda Fan '95 battled for the first set and superbly finished off the match 7-6 (7-5), 6-2.

The whole team concomitantly earned the win and feels it can defend the New England Women's 8 championships Coach Candy Royer was excited about the win and said, "We came. We played. We conquered."
