BETHLEHEM, Pa. – The Lehigh women’s tennis team snapped its six match losing streak with a nearly flawless performance in a 7-0 win over St. Francis (N.Y.) Saturday on the Ulrich Varsity Courts.

In doubles action the team of sophomore Jenai Bilimoria and senior Liz Piscitelli won 8-1 over Ewa Opala and Camille Petrizzo at No. 1 doubles, but that would be the only game won by the Terriers on the day. Freshman Abby Farrell teamed with sophomore Kathleen Larkin to post an 8-0 shutout at No. 2 doubles while sophomore Jill Sloand teamed with freshman Emily Bruch for an 8-0 win at the No. 3 flight.
Lehigh’s dominance continued into singles play as the Mountain Hawks won all six matches by 6-0, 6-0 scores. Bilimoria, Farrell, Piscitelli and Larkin won at the top four flights, while freshmen Gabby Drucker and Molly Brooks won at the bottom two flights.
