Rachael Ghorbani '09 Makes NEWITT Quarter-Finals in Both Singles & Doubles to End Fall Action


In the annual New England Women's Tennis Division III Tournament hosted by Amherst Oct. 19-21, Wesleyan had three quarter-finalists led by Rachael Ghorbani '09 (photo). Ghorbani went 2-1 at #3 singles to reach the round of eight in a field of 23 players while also teaming with Alex Sirois '09 at #2 doubles for a 2-1 mark and a quarter-final appearance. The third-doubles tandem of Ania Preneta '09 and Lizzie Collector '09 won two of their three matches as a quarter-finalist as well. In all three cases, the Cardinal quarter-finalists were eliminated by a top-four seed. In total, 24 colleges were represented at the NEWITT tournament. There was no team scoring. Wesleyan will resume action during the spring.
