October 2, 2005

AMHERST, MA - The Amherst College women's tennis team posted a pair of home victories on Sunday, defeating Bowdoin, 8-1, and crushing Colby College, 9-0. The Jeffs remained undefeated, moving to 3-0 on the year, while Bowdoin and Colby both fell to 1-2.

Amherst opened the day in dominating fashion, taking two of three doubles tilts from the Polar Bears before winning all six singles bouts. Amherst senior No. 1 player Kristen Raverta (W. Springfield, MA) faced the toughest challenge, dropping the first set, but rebounding to top Bowdoin senior Kara Perriello (Linnfield, MA), 3-6, 6-4, 10-4.

The Jeffs didn't skip a beat in their second match of the day, breezing through all nine matches without dropping a set. Senior Hadley Miller (N. Canton, OH) was perfect in the match, posting a 6-0, 6-0 victory over Colby sophomore Anna Jastrzab (Charleston, SC), and teaming with sophomore Laura Stein (Rockport, ME) for a 8-0 doubles win over Jastrzab and first-year Nicole Veilleux (Chocorua, NH).
