Mountain Hawks dominant in sweep of West Chester
Posted: March 16, 2005
Bethlehem, PA – The Mountain Hawks rebounded from their winless spring break trip to Florida as both Lehigh teams swept West Chester 7-0 Tuesday afternoon at the Lewis Tennis Center. It was a thoroughly dominating performance for the Brown and White as both the men and women won every set of every match and never allowed the Golden Rams to win more than one game in a set.
On the women’s side Maria Anorga and Gwen Dwyer as well as Lindsay Long and Ashley Donohue won doubles matches by 8-0 scores. In singles, Dwyer, freshman Alexis Jacobi, junior Starr Foster and Anorga all won 6-0, 6-0 to improve the Mountain Hawks record to 6-4.
The men had an equally easy time, sweeping doubles matches by scores of 8-1, 8-1 and 8-0. In singles play Randall Smalley and Brad Nelson cruised to 6-0, 6-0 victories, as Lehigh won every match handily to improve to 5-7 on the year.
The Lehigh women will be back in action on Saturday as the Mountain Hawks will head to State College to take on Penn State at 5:00. The men will have a week off before heading to Villanova for a 2:30 showdown on Tuesday, March 22.
