Women's Tennis Falls to Brandeis, Trounces Clark

The women's varsity tennis team lost their first match of the season to Brandeis University on Friday, 7-2, but slaughtered Clark University the next day, 9-0.

The team begins the season with a new head coach, Kathleen M. McNamara

In doubles play at Brandeis, first doubles team of Nora A. Humphrey '98 and Carol Matsuzaki '96 suffered a tough 8-4 loss. The second doubles team of Angela M. Mislowsky '99 and Seetha R. Ramnath '96 also lost, 8-4. The third team of Bharati Kommineni '97 and Lily J. Koo '97 was defeated 8-0.

MIT fared a little better in singles play as Matsuzaki won 6-4, 6-1 at the first singles spot and Mislowsky was also victorious in a 6-3, 6-1 victory at the third singles spot.

On the following day, however, the team totally annihilated Clark. All three doubles teams (Humphrey and Matsuzaki at first, Koo and Mislowsky at second, Colette A. Reiner '99 and Pardis C. Sabeti '97 at third) claimed dominant victories.

In singles play, all six MIT players (Matsuzaki, Koo, Mislowsky, Humphrey, Sarah V. Kringer '97, Susan S. Lin '98) did not lose a set.

Their next home match is tonight at 6 p.m. against Wheaton College.
