Seven members of the women's subvarsity tennis team played their first match of the season against the Harvard Tennis Club on Wednesday with a disappointing loss of 42.

The match began with doubles play. Linda Huang '00 and Effy Klopfer '02 played a difficult match and lost 80. The great teamwork between Lisa Hughey '02 and Lisa Dang '01 brought them to a 97 victory to score MIT's first point.

Singles matches followed and the Harvard Tennis Club was able to demonstrate their experience. At first singles, Dang lost 60, 60, while Sarah Chalos '01 lost 60, 62. Kosanna Poon dropper her third singles match 63, 63. Smriti Banthia '99 provided MIT their second and final point with an incredible 60, 64 win at first singles.

Team Coach Carol Matsuzaki said, "This was a great experience for our subvarsity squad. We pulled out a good doubles win by playing intelligently as well as a well earned, patient win at singles by Banthia."
