HARTFORD, Conn. -- Sophomore Rachel Rosman (Estero, Fla.) captured the 'A' flight championship today as the Brandeis University women's tennis team finished in second place out of seven teams at the ECAC Open Women's Tennis Championships at Trinity College.
Rosman breezed through the first two rounds of competition, dropping just three games in four sets against opponents from RPI and host Trinity. She then took a third-set super-tiebreaker from Sara D'Elia of Bowdoin College, 6-4, 1-6, 11-9.
In the other flights, rookie Sarah Richman (Sewickly, Pa.) won her first collegiate match, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5, over a foe from Connecticut College to reach the 'C' flight finals before falling to Bowdoin's Brett Richman, 6-2, 6-0. The doubles tandem of sophomore Ria Chadha (Mumbai, India) and rookie Davida Judelson (Woodbridge, Conn.) reached the finals of the doubles flight with a 6-2, 2-6, 7-6 win over a duo from RPI.
As a team, Brandeis finished in second place with 13.5 points, 5.5 behind champions Bowdoin, who won the four flights not won by Rosman.
