Mahwah, NJ | In what will be their lone match of the spring, non-traditional season, the College of Staten Island women’s tennis team fell on the road to Ramapo College as part of non-conference play, 7-2. Previously scheduled for earlier this week but pushed over to the weekend, CSI’s season will finalize at 8-5, while the Roadrunners advanced to 9-2.
Despite the final, CSI’s two wins came via default, as insufficient roster numbers for Ramapo resulted in them having to concede No. 3 Doubles and No. 6 Singles flights. Ramapo, however, responded by winning the remaining two doubles flights to knot the score up at 2-2.
First up, the team of Alexa Reeve and Marine Uyttenhove were efficient in the No. 2 position, scoring an 8-4 win over CSI’s Tristiana Adragna and Hannah Bruschi. In the heavily-contested top spot, the RC duo of Sabrina Koropchok and Sharon Cherkassy pulled away late to score an 8-6 winner over Samantha Maizer and Katherine Villarroel.
Ramapo rolled that momentum into singles play, where they were able to take all five wins, four in straight sets. The most heavily-contested flight came right at the top, where RC’s Koropchak was able to just get by Maizer in three sets, 3-6, 6-2, 10-5.
CSI has had two of their spring matches canceled, against both Farmingdale State College and Mount St. Mary College. Therefore, their season will end today with an 8-5 mark, one that included an advance to the CUNYAC Semifinal Round this past fall.
