Rookie Gautam Kalani (Mumbai, India) and sophomore Andrew Slutsky (Providence, RI) also added wins for Amherst, while first-year Jerome Giovinazzo (Staten Island, NY) fought the toughest match of the evening, holding out for individual victory, and the team win, in five sets (9-10, 9-4, 7-9, 9-1, 9-6).
For the women, senior co-captains Lauren Coape-Arnold (Scarsdale, NY) and Scotty Hanley (Sparks, MD), juniors Emily O’Brien (New Canaan, CT) and Sarah Harper (Rochester, MN) and sophomore Libby Martin (St. Louis, MO) all boasted 3-0 wins for Amherst. At the number one spot, junior Caroline Shannon (Hanover, NH) battled back after dropping the first two games, 9-6, to defeat Tufts’ Rebecca Rice (St. Louis, MO), 3-2.
