SUNY New Paltz stays unbeaten after wins

Montana Wilson and the SUNY New Paltz women’s tennis team defeated both Oneonta and Cortland to remain unbeaten on the season.

Cortland - The State University of New York at New Paltz women’s tennis team remains unbeaten through Saturday at 4-0 (4-0 SUNYAC) after having defeated SUNY Oneonta, 7-2, and host SUNY Cortland, 8-1, in State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) East Division Pool Play.

The Hawks had little trouble with Oneonta. The No. 1 doubles tandem of seniors Stephanie Schara and Lindsey Garyn won easily against Danielle Browarski and Emily Shannon, while sophomore Alli Esposito and freshman Paige Munroe upended Elizabeth Flamman and Lauren Skolnick.

Schara lost (6-3, 6-3) at No. 1 singles, but the rest of the lineup cleaned up. Wilson, Garyn, DiPaulo, Esposito and Munroe all kept their perfect records so far this season intact.

Against Cortland, the scores remained close at nearly every position, as the Red Dragons put up resistance all throughout the lineup. Schara and Garyn set the tone with a thrilling 9-7 victory at No. 1 doubles, and the No. 2 and 3 tandems followed suit, giving the Hawks a 3-0 edge heading into singles.

Schara battled with Loraine Jelinek and inspired the team with a super tiebreaker victory. She won 7-5, 1-6, 10-2.

New Paltz next travels to Danville, Conn., on Thursday to face Western Connecticut State University in a non-conference match at 4 p.m.
