Women’s Tennis Clinches Three Seed in CACC Tournament; Sets Program Record for CACC Victories with 6-1 Win at Post

MIDDLEBURY, Conn. – The USciences women's tennis team clinched the three seed in the upcoming Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Tournament, tying its best-ever finish in the regular season standings in the process, with a 6-1 win at Post on Saturday afternoon at Edgewood Bath & Tennis. 

The Devils close out their league schedule at 7-2, setting a new program record for CACC victories.

USciences will turn right around and host Post - the No. 6 seed - in the First Round of CACC Tournament on Tuesday at 6 p.m., with the winner moving on to face No. 2 seed Goldey-Beacom in the Semifinals at Edgewood Bath & Tennis on Friday at 1 p.m. 

That will now be the Devils' next match, as Sunday's scheduled match at Temple has been postponed due to impending inclement weather. 

After dropping the doubles point despite a 6-0 sweep at the third flight by junior Danielle Paran and freshman Diana Sosonkin, University of the Sciences swept singles play. 

Sosonkin ended her first CACC campaign unbeaten at 6-0 in singles play after coming back to win in three sets, 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, at the fourth flight. 

Senior Karla Miletic is right behind her at 6-1 after a straight-set victory at No. 1 singles. 

Those two are now both second on the team with seven singles victories, trailing only Stephanie Mazurek's nine after the sophomore prevailed in three sets, 6-7, 6-4, 10-6, at the third flight. 

The win was the 21st of her career, which moved her into a tie for ninth in program history. 

Freshman Myka Williams won her sixth match of the season, sweeping her second flight opponent to improve to 3-3 in CACC play. 

Paran is also 3-3 in CACC play after not losing a game at No. 6 singles, something freshman Myra Anwar also did at the fifth flight.
