Women's Tennis Finishes in Fifth at ECAC Team Tournament

CAMBRIDGE, MA - The Brown women's tennis team (6-2) finishes in fifth place in the eight-team ECAC Tournament, hosted by Harvard over the weekend. Yale claimed the title, while Dartmouth took second. Harvard and Princeton rounded out the top four. Seeded fourth in the tournament, the Bears were upset by fifth-seeded Dartmouth, 5-2, in the first round. Brown rebounded after the loss to the Big Green, defeating #8 Columbia, 6-1, and then #6 Boston University, 4-1, in the fifth-place match. The Big Green would then go on to upset top-seeded Princeton, 4-3, in the semifinals, before falling to #3-seeded Yale, 4-0, in the Championship match. Junior Marisa Schonfeld (Washington, DC) led the Bears over the weekend, winning all three of her doubles matches with senior Emily Ellis (Fort Worth, TX), and claiming two singles matches. She didn't finish her third singles match, against BU, as Brown had won the match before her match was completed.
