#48 Women’s Tennis Drops Two Matches on the Road

ITHACA, NY/NEW YORK, NY – The 48th-ranked Brown women's tennis team (16-6, 2-2) dropped a pair of Ivy matches on the road over the weekend, falling to Cornell, 4-3, and to Columbia, 5-2. The Bears dropped the doubles point in both matches, before winning three singles matches against the Big Red and two against the Lions. Freshman Laura Wiley (Ft. Lauderdale, FL) led Brown, going 2-0 in her singles matches at #5 (against Cornell) and #4 (against Columbia).

On Saturday against Cornell, Brown got singles wins from Wiley at #5 (6-1, 5-7, 6-3), sophomore Jessica Harrow (La Crescenta, CA) at #3 (6-3, 6-1), and freshman Nikita Uberoi (Boca Raton, FL) at #6 (5-7, 6-2, 7-5). The Bears also picked up one doubles win, as junior Misia Krasowski (Deerfield, IL) combined with sophomore Ariel Caldwell (Atlanta, GA) for an 8-5 win.

On Sunday against Columbia, Brown received wins from senior Julie Flanzer (Highland Park, IL) at #3 (6-3, 1-6, 6-4), and from Wiley at #4 (3-6, 6-3, 6-3).
