MIT defeats Simmons 5-0

  Sophomore Victoria Tam was one of two players to pick up two wins for MIT.

WINDSOR, Conn. -- For a second consecutive year MIT faced off against Simmons in its first match in the NCAA tournament, and for a second consecutive year the result was the same as the Engineers scored a 5-0 victory to advance to the third round of the 2014 NCAA Division III championships. Sophomore Victoria Tam was one of two players to pick up two wins for MIT.

MIT (17-4) quickly picked up its first point of the day when Tam teamed with freshman Elysa Kohrs to score an 8-0 decision at No. 1. The Engineers moved to a 2-0 lead in the match after the No. 2 doubles team of senior Julia Hsu and sophomore Sunnie Lampl won their match by an 8-1 score. At No. 3 the MIT duo of junior Michelle Dutt and freshman Krystal Lai made it a clean sweep for the Engineers as they defeated the team of Theresa Reinhard and Katie Crowley 8-2.

In singles play Simmons (14-6) could not mount a challenge to the MIT lead as the Engineers quickly decided the match with a pair of 6-0, 6-0 victories. Playing at No. 1, Kohrs scored the fourth point of the day for MIT, downing Reinhard before Tam finished off the Sharks with her win against Sofie Epshtein. With the victory the Engineers will advance to the Round of 16 for the first time in program history.

MIT will face host and No. 2 ranked Amherst at noon Saturday in the third round.
