The women's tennis team dominated this past weekend at the Bowdoin Women's Team Invitational, which marked the end of the fall season.

A string of impressive performances in both doubles and singles culminated in a weekend record of 41-1.

"A lot of [preparation] involved getting used to competing and improving our mental game," said Emma Chow '15. "It allows us to get through those tough matches and three-setters."

The tournament was set up as a round robin, with seven flights of singles and three flights of doubles.

In flight one for singles, captain Kellen Alberstone '13 took second place to Rochester's Frances Tseng. But the Polar Bears won flights two through seven all by a 3-0 score, thanks to Kate Winingham '14, captain Emily Lombardi '12, Chantalle Lavertu '13, Chow, captain Hannah Hoerner '12, and Susanna Howard '14, respectively.

Bowdoin also won all of the doubles flights. Their success can be traced back to the fact that all except one of the doubles teams have been working together since the beginning of the season.

"We've been learning how to work together and play off each other's strengths," said Chow.
