Tennis swings to positive start on year

Women’s tennis opened up the spring season this past weekend going 2-1 in their first three contests.

The Jays first fell to Iowa State 4-1 in Des Moines, then went on to defeat Missouri State 5-2 and North Dakota in a 7-0 sweep in home matchups at Hanscom Tennis Center.

Sophomore Meredith Benson performed well all weekend. She was the only Bluejay to win her match against Iowa State, defeating Margarita Timakova 6-4, 6-0 at the No. 6 singles spot. Benson also notched two wins against North Dakota, partnering with junior Erin Epperson for a 6-1 win at No.
