PROVIDENCE, RI - The 62nd-ranked Brown women's tennis team (16-7, 4-2) rebounded from Friday's loss to #56 Harvard to post a 5-2 win over #53 Dartmouth on Sunday afternoon. The match was the final home match of the season for the Bears, who are assured a winning record in the Ivy League for the second straight year. Brown was led by freshman Misia Krasowski (Deerfield, IL) and sophomore Julie Flanzer (Highland Park, IL), who helped secure the doubles point with a win at #2 doubles and also won two critical matches at the middle of the singles lineup, including Flanzer's match-clinching win at #4.
