No. 1 Williams remains undefeated with shutout of Tufts

  Kathleen Elkins was a winner in both singles and doubles against Tufts.

MEDFORD, MA -- Playing their thirteenth match of the season against NESCAC opponent Tufts (7-6/1-2 NESCAC), the Ephs (13-0/3-0 NESCAC) extended their perfect record to 13-0 on Saturday.

Despite a few alterations to the line-up, the result remained the same: victory. Williams did not lose a single match, making the final score 9-0. Kathleen Elkins and Maria Pylypiv played in the number one doubles position, and certainly proved they were up to the task. They dispatched the Tufts pair of Bowman/Baum 8-4. The first-year pair of Alex Stone and Linda Shin also impressed in the second spot, winning 8-3. Hannah Atkinson and Maya Hart also won their doubles match 8-4.

In singles, Williams won every match in straight sets. There were a couple close matches as Shoemaker and Pastor both needed tiebreakers to capture victory.

“We played a slightly different line-up today and everyone stepped up nicely,” said coach Alison Swain.
