Final Dual Match of Fall for Smith

Smith Tennis hosted the MIT Beavers in a match dedicated to Rally For The Cure on Saturday, October 11.  The cold rainy day turned sunny but not before Smith was down 3-0 in doubles. The singles was played in two venues with exhibition matches of Christine Yee, Katie Hazen, Poorni Arunachalam and Jimin Lee continuing indoors while Kelli Cheung, Ruth Yi and Samantha Peikes started on the dry outdoor courts. Seema Samawi, Margaret Anne Smith and Alexandra Steck rounded out the singles play. Experience was gained but few games scored for the Pioneers as they faced the formidable yet gracious MIT team now ranked 1 in the conference. The final match score was 9-0 for the Engineers. This rounds out dual match play for Smith Tennis. Smith will take the next two days off and be back in action getting ready for the historic NEWITT event hosted by Smith, Mount Holyoke and Amherst on October 17-19.
