The Bowdoin Women's Tennis Team had mixed results last weekend, dropping a tough match to MIT on Saturday, then rebounding to dismantle Trinity on Sunday.

In doubles against the Engineers, Polar Bears fell 8-5 to their opponents at the No. 1 and No. 3 spots.

The No. 2 team, composed of sophomore Kristen Raymond and junior Christine D'Elia, fought hard and emerged victorious, winning 9-7.

Down 2-1, the Bears needed to win four of the six remaining points in singles for victory. The women got straight-set victories from the No. 2 through No. 4 positions. Sarah D'Elia '09 delivered at No. 2, position. Raymond at No. 3 and Christine D'Elia at No. 4 both contributed more points to Bowdoin's tally.

Despite losing at the No. 6 position, Bowdoin still led 4-3 with only two points left on the table.

But Rachel Waldman '09 and Kelsey Hughes '07 could not deliver, losing close three-set matches to seal the match at 5-4 in MIT's favor.

Waldman dropped a 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 decision. Hughes, down 5-4 in the third set, was forced to retire after injuring her leg.

On Sunday against Trinity, the women overcame their frustration from the previous day's heartbreaking loss to defeat the Bantams. They swept the doubles in a decisive fashion, and then rolled through the singles, each match decided in straight sets.

Bowdoin's 9-0 victory was highlighted by performances from senior Kristina Sisk and first-year Alex Franceschi, who lost a combined four games en route to victories in singles.
