Women's tennis downs Alma College, 8-1

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Brandeis women's tennis team bounced back from their second loss of the season with a convincing 8-1 win over Alma College, out of Michigan, on their spring trip to Orlando. The Judges moved to 4-2 on the season thanks to three singles matches in which they dropped one or zero games.

The Judges had little trouble in doubles action, winning 8-2 in the top two spots and 8-1 at No. 3. Sophomore Rachel Rosman (Bonita Springs, Fla./Estero) did not drop a game at No. 1 singles and lost just two in the top double stop. Junior Ariana Sanai (Hopewell Junction, N.Y./John Jay) and sophomore Mackenzie Gallegos (Friendswood, Texas/Friendswood) both cruised to 6-1, 6-0, triumphs at No. 3 and No. 4 singles, respectively. Junior Emily Weisberger (Wayne, N.J./Wayne Hills) teamed with Sanai at No. 2 doubles and won a 6-1, 6-2, match at No. 5 singles.
