AMHERST, N.Y. (Oct. 20, 2018) - The Queens College women's tennis team wrapped up the 2018 regular season with a 7-0 victory over Daemen on Saturday (Oct. 20) in Amherst. The Knights finish the regular season with a 9-0 record and a perfect 7-0 mark in East Coast Conference play.
With the Wildcats fielding just five players, Queens needed to win just one of two doubles matches to claim the first point of the overall contest. Anica Knezevic and Laura Ortega Jover teamed at first-doubles to take a 6-2 decision over Christina Stasiuk and Jessica Robins. Line Sorsdahl Aasen and Ruth Artaza Martin won a 6-0 match at second-doubles for good measure to give Queens a 2-0 lead with sixth-singles being a default as well. Marisa Ostoja was tested at the top flight of singles play in a 6-4, 7-5 win over Stasiuk while Louisa Brunetti comfortably handled Robins (6-2, 6-0) at second-singles. Ortega Jover, Knezevic and Sorsdahl Aasen swept each of their opponents by 6-0, 6-0 scores to give Queens the emphatic 7-0 victory.
The Knights will host the East Coast Conference Championship on Saturday (Oct. 27) and Sunday (Oct. 28) with QC holding the No. 1 overall seed in the four-team playoff. Queens will host fourth-seeded Roberts Wesleyan in the first semifinal while the second semifinal will feature No. 2 NYIT and No. 3 District of Columbia.
