After splitting the weekend by beating Connecticut College and falling to Virginia, it marked a final month that saw the women go 5-9 this season and gain some momentum heading into postseason play.

Junior co-captains Charlotte Cabot and Emma Dunn also had a successful weekend. For Cabot, she beat Amanda Whelan of Virginia and Caroline Lippincott of Conn. College in straight sets, while Dunn beat Molly Prockop of Virginia in four sets and Aaliyah Davison of Connecticut College in straight sets.

The team will next be in action starting Friday for the NESCAC Championship Quarterfinals at Trinity College.
