This past weekend, Bison Women’s tennis faced off against St. Bonaventure and Coppin State, easily defeating both opponents 5-2 and 6-0 respectively. 

Against the Bonnies, Anna Lajos ’25 at No. 1 singles beat her opponent in a comeback win 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. 

At No. 3 singles Abby Platt ’26 won her match 7-5, 7-6 (3), at No. 4 singles Kate Novak ’24 won 7-5, 6-0 and Caroline Marcus ’25 won very easily at No. 6 singles with the score 6-1, 6-3. 

The doubles matches against St. Bonaventure were also successful for the Bison, as all three duos swept all three matches. 

Against Coppin State, there was not one loser amongst the Bison team. 

Platt at No. 1 singles won 6-0, 6-1, Novak at No. 2 won by retirement and Mirra Manolov ’26 at No. 3 won 6-1, 6-0.

The Orange and blue earned the doubles point due to efforts by Lajos and Tyne Miller ’24 at No.1, as well as Madi Sebulsky ’24 and Platt at No. 2, both matches resulting in a 6-2 win. 

We had a very successful weekend, and it felt good to win our third team match in a row,” Novak said. “We have been working really hard on and off the court, and it was exciting to see it all start to pay off. We have three matches this weekend and our first Patriot League match the following weekend, so we are excited for that! It takes a lot of teamwork and good team chemistry to have these results, and it makes me excited to see what these next couple of weeks hold!”

The Bison hope to continue their winning streak as they face Siena College and IUP this upcoming weekend, Feb. 24 & 26.
