Barry responds to rare regular-season loss by beating NYIT

MIAMI SHORES, Fla. -- Barry wasn’t about to let the remnants of its first regular-season loss in three years last week linger long. The Buccaneers took care of that by beating No. 11 NYIT 7-2 on Thursday.

It improved Barry’s record to 16-1 while NYIT lost for just the fourth time in 23 matches.

In a matchup of two of the nation’s top-ranked singles players at the No. 1 spot, Barry’s 31st-ranked Linda Fritschken defeated NYIT’s 30th-ranked Sara Burinato in consecutive sets 6-4, 6-1. The Bucs No. 19-ranked Karina Goia was on her way to a flawless win against Gabriela Siembab, jetting out to a 6-0, 3-0 start before her Bears counterpart retired at No. 2 singles.

New York Tech’s Justyna Krol was a 6-4, 6-2 winner versus ninth-ranked Elisabeth Abanda at No. 3 Barry’s Cristina Valladares, who has performed well this year after sitting out last season, improved to 6-1 with a 6-2, 6-4 triumph against Melanie Benyadi at No. 4.

Barry’s Blanka Szavay defeated Alex Borgenhoff 6-0, 6-2 at No. 5. NYIT’s Alessia Rossetti was a 6-2, 6-1 winner against Bucs freshman Maria Medeiros, who was competing in her first dual match of the spring.

Barry’s Ana Pain and Kimmy Twelker beat Burinato and Madalina Florea 8-6 at No. 1 doubles. In her first match in more than a week, Bucs sophomore All-American Emma Onila returned to the doubles lineup and paired with Fritschken, her No. 1-ranked partner, for an 8-1 win against Siembab and Krol at the No. 2 flight. Abanda and Goia, the 13th-ranked doubles team in the country, defeated Borgenhoff and Benyadi 8-2 at No. 3 to complete the pairs sweep.
