Jeffs Open Weekend with Pair of 8-1 Wins at Wellesley

WELLESLEY, MA – The second-ranked Amherst College women’s tennis team kicked off its weekend with a pair of 8-1 wins at Wellesley College. After defeating the host Blue Pride at Keohane Sports Center, the Lord Jeffs moved to 7-1 on the season with a victory over Brandeis University.

After Amherst swept Wellesley in doubles play, three of the six singles matches required a third set. Jordan Brewer ’14 (Woodland Hills, CA) came from behind to earn a 4-6, 6-3, 10-7 win at No. 1, while Charlotte Wilinsky ’11 (Florence, MA) came back to defeat Kendall Tada at No. 6 (4-6, 7-6, 10-5).

The Jeffs then took two of three doubles points from Brandeis and won five singles matches in straight sets. Wilinsky was particularly impressive at No. 6, as she surrendered only one point to Nina Levine (6-0, 6-1).

The Lord Jeffs (7-1) will wrap up their weekend Sunday afternoon with a pair of matches at Vassar College. Amherst will take on Bates College at 12:45 p.m., followed a 4:15 showdown with the host Brewers.
