Women’s tennis splits the weekend with a win

Dani Kaufman, Senior Writer

At the St. Bonaventure Tennis Center last Saturday, the Bison women’s tennis team played two teams, winning one while losing the other. Chloe Zilkha ’23 led the way with crucial wins to earn the team the one win of the day against Niagara. With Niagara and the Orange and Blue tied with three points apiece at the end of the day, it all came down to Zilkha, who had to win her match in order to take the win for the Bison. Zilkha dominated her match with a final score of 6-2, 6-1. Sadly, the Bison fell to St. Bonaventure on that same day for an early-season score of 1-1.

In the doubles department, the pair of Paige Leavy ’20 and Dax Seidlin ’23 continued to dominate with a swift 6-0 to start the season 2-0 as a pair. Seidlin also dominated her singles match with a score of 6-1, 6-2 to start off her spring season strong.

“My teammates stepped up to the plate and played competitively,” Seidlin said. “I enjoyed playing against each of the college players, it’s always nice to compete.”

The following day, the Orange and Blue traveled back home to compete one-on-one with Siena. Unsurprisingly, the dominating doubles duo of Leavy and Seidlin continued to dominate their opponents. The pair is undefeated on the season so far.

“They fought hard for every single point,” head coach Tammy Cecchini said.

The Orange and Blue fell to 1-2 on the season and will look to turn things around on Friday at the Central PA Tennis Center.
