LONG BEACH -
The Long Beach State women’s tennis team closed out a busy week Saturday by taking down No. 37 Harvard 4-3 at the Rhodes Tennis Center.
Beach Tennis (12-2) earned the first point of the day in doubles as wins at the top two spots to put the 49ers up early. Maeva Razakasoa and Hayley Thompson defeated Hannah Morrill and June Lee 8-4 while Laura Eales and Ebba Unden put down No. 65 Monica Lin and Spencer Liang 8-5.
In singles, LBSU scored the next two points to grab the 3-0 lead early. Hayley Thompson won 6-3, 6-2 over Hannah Morrill while Julie Gerard won over June Lee 6-2, 6-2. The Crimson (7-4) then got on the board with a win at the No. 6 spot, but Beach Tennis secured the victory when Karolina Rozenberg won 7-5, 6-2 over Amy He. Harvard would win the final two remaining matches, putting the final score at 4-3.
“We competed very well at every position today,” head coach Jenny Hilt-Costello said. “We were able to post four very strong points on the board against a very good team.”
The win was the third for the 49ers over the last four days. Long Beach will close out March with a single home match next week as it hosts Sacramento State on Thursday at 2 p.m. at the Rhodes Tennis Center.
