GREAT DANES START SEASON WITH HARD FOUGHT WIN OVER RED FOXES, 4-3


UAlbany(Latham, NY)  The curtains opened on a new season and the Danes didn’t disappoint the good tennis crowd that turned out at Tri-City Tennis and Fitness.  They avenged a 4-3 loss to Marist from last year with a win by the same score.  It was a solid triumph for the Danes, one that conceivably could have been 6-1.  But a couple of close matches went to the Red Foxes after freshman Cat Crummey had clinched the match for the good guys with her 6-3,6-3 victory at #4 in her home club.
 
The doubles started out with Marist in control at #3 and UAlbany in complete control at #1 (Scott-Lopez).   So it looked like the doubles point would come down to #2, freshmen Crummey and Mireille Hermans (Netherlands).  The Dane frosh started a bit slowly and found themselves down 3-2.  But from that point they reeled off an impressive six straight games to take #2 doubles.  Kirsten Scott (Alberta, Canada) and Rocio Lopez (Madrid, Spain) soon followed suit at #1 and the Danes won the always important doubles point to go up 1-0.
