On Friday, the Fordham Women’s Tennis Team lost to George Washington University 5-2 at the Cary Leeds Center in the Bronx. On Saturday, over at Life Time Athletic, the Rams lost by the same score to Temple University.

Despite the tough losses, there were some highlights from the weekend. After losing first and second doubles, the team bounced back for a win at third doubles by senior-freshman combination Gianna Insogna and Genevieve Quenville. The pair bested the Colonials 6-4 on Friday.

In singles, sophomore Arina Taluyenko got a well-deserved win over the reigning Atlantic 10 performer of the year, Maria Siopacha. Taluyenko claimed the first singles victory 6-3, 6-3.

In sixth singles, freshman Nicole Li won in straight sets 6-2, 6-2.

The following day, the Rams still could not find success in doubles, despite Taluyenko’s and senior Tatiana Grigoryan’s victory at first doubles 6-2.
Grigoryan continued her success in singles, winning 6-3 and 6-2 at third singles.

Insogna also picked up a point for the Rams, winning in fourth singles 6-4, 6-1.

Despite the difficult weekend, the Women’s Tennis Team will be ready to get back into action this Wednesday, March 6. They will be traveling to Philadelphia to face Drexel at noon.
