ORLANDO, Fla.- Traveling north for the majority of the week during Spring Break, the Palm Beach Atlantic University women’s tennis team opened up play with an 8-1 victory over Minnesota State-Mankato on Monday morning. The victory improves PBA to 3-6 on the season.
The number one doubles duo of Lina Rubiano and Natalia Trotter continued their good work at the top for PBA with an 8-1 opening win while the MSUM #2-doubles tandem earned a 8-1 victory of their own. Freshman Jordan Ittersagen and junior Krishna Domenech fired back for Palm Beach Atlantic at #3-doubles with an 8-3 victory.
The Fish dominated singles with Rubiano coming away with 6-1, 6-1 game victories followed by an even stingier performance at #2-singles by Natalie Aleman with a 6-2, 6-0 win. Trotter and Ittersagen earned easy wins at #3 and #5-singles respectively while Amber Braaten and Domenech were pushed to three sets each at #4 and #6 singles. Domenech came back from a 4-6 loss to earn 6-3, 10-5 wins to close out the match.
The Fish will take on Malone College (Ohio) on Tuesday, March 9th as they continue their busy week in Orlando with an 11 a.m. match with the Pioneers.
