No. 2 Williams takes care of No. 6 Pomona-Pitzer

CLAREMONT, Calif. -- Williams took on sixth-ranked Pomona-Pitzer, hoping to extend its win streak to 18 matches, going back to last year. The Ephs did just that, beating the Sage Hens 8-1.

In doubles play, the Ephs came away with a win in two out of three matches. After an initial loss, the two remaining Williams pairs came out on top. Kara Shoemaker and Rebecca Curran proved a formidable force yet again, defeating Sammy Chao and Lea Lynn 8-3. The second Williams pair of Maria Pylypiv and Kathleen Elkins also won 8-4.

Four Ephs made quick work of their opponents, while the senior captains battled through their long matches to earn their Ws. Kathleen Elkins won her first set 6-3, but Mae Coyiuto of Pomona-Pitzer would not go away easily. Elkins fought for a well-deserved 7-5 victory, taking the match in the second set. Shoemaker fell in her first set 2-6, but came back to win in three sets 2-6, 6-1, 6-2. 

“Our senior captains showed incredible tenacity as the last two matches on today”, Williams head coach Alison Swain said.
