It was a team effort for the Rams, as upperclassmen such as junior Maia Balce and senior Gianna Insogna won 6-3 at second doubles, and the junior-sophomore duo of Tatiana Grigoryan and Arina Taluyenko bested the Pirates 6-4. The Rams clinched the doubles point of the match with these results, and the team never looked back after that.
In singles, Fordham continued their command, with Insogna winning in sixth singles 6-3, 6-3; freshman Genevieve Quenville won 6-2, 7-5 in fourth singles, and Grigoryan came back in third singles to with a game score of 2-6, 7-5 and 6-4. In first singles, seasoned Taluyenko won in a tie-breaker: she took the first set 7-6, lost the second 6-2, and recovered in the third set, to win 7-6, clinching the win in the tiebreaker 7-1.
With the win, Fordham improves to 2-3 on the spring season. The team narrowly lost its last match against NJIT and won on Feb. 2 by a score of 7-0 over Quinnipiac.
After a successful match, Fordham Women’s Tennis is excited to travel north and face the Army West Point Cadets at 4:00 p.m this Saturday, Feb. 23. After that, Fordham will take on St. Bonaventure at 9 a.m. on Sunday morning in the team’s Atlantic 10 Conference opener.
