After winning their third straight match against The College of the Holy Cross on Friday, Trinity Women’s Tennis kept their streak alive, beating Babson College on Saturday. After a 7-0 shutout against Holy Cross, the Bantams dominated Babson, winning two out of their three doubles matches and sweeping their singles matches. The recent win brings the Bantam’s record to 5-2, leaving Babson with an overall record of 10-5.
For the doubles matches, Vanja Babunski ’18 and Julia Brogan ’20 won as doubles partners. Even though Babson took a 2-1 lead early on, the Trinity pair ended the match with an 8-2 win. The Babson team beat Krista Jiranek ’20 and Ania Aliev ’18 1-8, but the Bantams were able to get them back during singles.
Trinity then returned and won 5 of the 6 matches in singles to achieve the overall win. The win included many shutouts, and very few Babson points. The Bantams were led by Trinity’s Jillian Winer ’20, as she closed out her singles matches with 6-1 and 6-0 finals. Jiranek’s singles match ended with a 6-4 and 6-3 win over the Babson competition. Babunski and Brogan won both top singles spots, Babunski with a 6-4 and 6-0 win. With Winer, Jiranek, and Aliev winning in singles, the team wrapped up a successful match, guiding them to their 6-3 win over Babson.
After the solid victory, the next matches for the Bantams will be at home against Brandeis University on April 8, and Bates College on April 9. Women’s Tennis hopes to continue their solid play in April and impressive winning streak. In a short season, which will end at the end of this month, the pressure is on for Trinity Women’s Tennis to build on the successful start they have had to the season so far.
