Kelsey Brower SOUTH HADLEY, Mass.

Mount Holyoke swept the three doubles contests to set the tone in the early going. Hsiang and Moore cruised to an 8-0 win at the number one slot, while first years AnnElizabeth Konkel and Kelsey Brower added an 8-4 victory at the number two position. The Lyons number three tandem of Sayarath and Marifian also came out of top in their match. They prevailed 8-1 for their third triumph of the fall.

The hosts then closed things out with six more wins on the singles side. From one to six, the lineup featured sophomore Nahrhee Han, Hsiang, Marifian, Sayarath, junior Heather Richardson and Moore.

Sayarath has now collected five straight singles victories.

Both squads are slated to take the courts again on Saturday. Mount Holyoke (2-5, 2-3 NEWMAC) will host Wheaton College at 1:00 p.m., while Clark (3-5, 0-4 NEWMAC) will visit Babson College for a match beginning at 10:00 a.m.
