Women’s tennis shut out the College of Notre Dame on Friday, Oct. 7 by a score of 9-0. The win improved the Cavaliers to 11-0 overall and 8-0 in the CSAC.

For this match, head coach John Magee decided to adjust the doubles line-up for the Cavaliers.

Sophomores Katie Kennedy and Adriana Scotto paired up for an 8-4 win. Senior Alexis DiCamillo teamed with freshman Samantha Trumbo for a shutout of 8-0.  In the No. 3 doubles spot, senior Michelle Lettmann and sophomore Victoria Nastala recorded an 8-1 victory.

“The match went really well for us,” DiCamillo, senior human resource management major, said. “We stayed focused and enjoyed the competition that will help us in our upcoming CSAC matches.”

In singles play, all six players posted victories. In the No. 1 spot, Kennedy took home a 6-1, 6-1 victory. In 2010, Kennedy claimed CSAC Second Team honors in singles play at the No. 1 position.

DiCamillo fought her way to a 6-4 first set and 6-2 score for the second set. Last year, DiCamillo earned CSAC First Team honors in singles play.

Following DiCamillo, Lettmann won the No. 3 match 6-2, 6-0.  The four and five singles matches were played by Scotto and Trumbo; both players finished with 6-0, 6-0 victories.

“There is going to be a lot of pressure the next two weeks,” Scotto, sophomore undeclared, said. “As a team we just have to keep our intensity level up and just play our game.”

After a 5-4 loss to Marywood University on Monday, Oct. 10, the team has three matches left, two of which are on the road. Their match against Gwynedd-Mercy College, a 12-0 team, will be their toughest remaining match. The final three games of the season will decide the Lady Cavs’ seeding for the CSAC playoffs.

“We really want to win the CSAC [championship] this year,” Kennedy, sophomore communication major, said.

“We bond really well together as a team,” Scotto said. “We are all really close friends and that is important when it comes to influencing our success as a whole.”
