    Holy Cross Tops Tennis Team

    Prior to Easter break, the Tennis Team picked up their battle racquets and faced off against a talented UConn team in Storrs, Conn. The Friars were unable to come out with a victory as they fell 6-1 to an overpowering UConn squad. The lone point for the Friars came off the racquet of Marisela Aviles-Duron ’13 as she was able to avenge her doubles loss with a commanding 6-3, 6-0 victory over her opponent at first singles. With the victory, Aviles-Duron is now 4-6 this spring in singles matches. Jen Cusack ’10 also put up a good fight in her singles match but ultimately fell 6-4, 6-5 to her counterpart. Aviles-Duron and Ayushi Sinha ’11 were able to force their doubles match to the brink as they rallied back, only to fall by a final score of 8-6.
