Capturing top honors in both the first and second doubles divisions, the Harvard women's tennis team edged out 11 area teams to win the Greater Boston Championships at Brandeis last weekend. The Crimson recorded 12 victory points to squeeze past runner-up Boston Vollege with ten.
After drawing a bye in the first round, Martha and Sally Roberts easily handled a team from Northeastern, 6-2, 6-3. In the semifinal match that rightfully should have been for the title, the Roberts sisters fought off five set points before defeating the Tufts representatives and the second seeds in the tournament, 6-3, 7-5, Repeating last week's doubles match against Wellesly, the Roberts once more slipped by the Peterson twins with ease.
Captain Katie Ditzler and Leslie Miller breezed by duos from Northeastern and Wellesley to reach the championships of the number two doubles. After losing the second set in the finals, they regained their winning ways, putting down a tough Boston College team, 6-1, 5-7, 6-4.
Playing in the first singles division, Meg Meyers advanced to the second round, defeating Kathy Lynch from B.C. to register the Crimson's first point of the tournament. There Meyers lost to Deirdre O'Halleran of Boston University, an eventual finalist, 3-6, 0-6.
Libby Pierpont furnished excitement as well as points, grabbing second place in the number two singles. After a relatively uneventful 2 and 4 victory over Heidi Gurian of Brandies, Pierpont eked by Tufts' Wendy Shahen, 6-1, 6-7, 7-6, in a three-set match decided by two tiebreakers. After gaining the final with a 6-3, 6-2; drubbing of Bulldog Lydia Prypehan, the Harvard freshman dropped a tight match to the top-seed, Marina Nolan, from B.C.
