Hayley Zukerberg

NEW LONDON, Conn. – Senior Hayley Zukerberg (Newton, Mass.) went undefeated in doubles play and picked up an additional win against the strongest singles competition to lead the Connecticut College women's tennis team at a home tournament on Sunday afternoon. The Camels competed against Holy Cross, New Haven, and Wheaton to conclude their fall season.

Zukerberg first teamed up with classmate Elena Erdekian (Wayland, Mass.) to win the No. 4 doubles bracket. The pair first earned an 8-6 win over two student-athletes representing Holy Cross and New Haven before downing a duo from New Haven by an 8-3 score. Zukerberg then went 1-1 at No. 1 singles, defeating Wheaton's Isabelle Garvanne by an 8-5 decision in a consolation match.

Sophomore Alexis Tsang (Wellesley Hills, Mass.) also had a strong day and matched Zukerberg's performance by going by a combined 3-1 overall. Tsang most notably won the No. 5 singles bracket, bettering opponents from New Haven and Holy Cross by scores of 8-5 and 8-3, respectively, and also earned a dominating No. 2 doubles victory with senior Stephanie Simon (Wellesley, Mass.) against a pair from Wheaton.

Connecticut College participated in three tournaments and registered a 1-1 dual record against Division I competition during the fall season. The Camels will resume play during the spring semester.
