WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- The Sailfish women’s tennis team made easy work of Ave Maria University on Saturday at Gaines Park as the women’s top two doubles showings polished off straight set wins while the singles portions only saw four games go the way of the Lady Gyrenes. The win improves Palm Beach Atlantic to 1-1 on the season.

Victoria Baca and Natalia Trotter proved too strong at #1-doubles as did Vuokko Vahatalo and Jessica Wharton at #2-doubles as both tandems claimed 8-0 victories. Seniors Katie Livesay and Krishna Domenech posted a solid win at #3-doubles as well with an 8-2 win.

Baca led the way in singles action with a straight set win of 6-0, 6-0 versus her #1-singles counterpart as did Trotter at #3-singles with an identical scoring mark. Vahatalo and freshman Maria Jimenez would drop only a game each as they polished off 6-1, 6-0 victories each while Wharton chipped in a 6-1, 6-1 win at #4-singles.
