Anchorwomen go medieval on Lancers

In a fashion that has become all too familiar over the last two and a half years, the Rhode Island College Women’s Tennis team absolutely dominated their opponent, Saturday afternoon; their victim this time being the Worcester State University Lancers. 
The Anchorwomen dominated at all levels of competition but were especially effective when it comes to doubles. No. 1 doubles pair Sophomore Casey Burns and Freshman Jenna Lisi and No. 2 doubles pair juniors Laurel Ten Eyck and Grace Zangari both swept their opposition with identical scores of 8-0. 
From here RIC proceed to quickly score four wins in singles before rain ended the match prematurely. Zangari and Eyck both held commanding leads in their respective single matches when the remainder of the contest was called off, leaving RIC 7-0 winners on the day. 
With this victory the Anchorwomen continue to only have recorded a sole single match loss on the season and improve to 6-0. RIC will be on the road for their next matchup, an out of conference road contest against the Franklin Pierce University Ravens set to begin at 5:30pm.
