Women's Tennis Closes Season With Win

Going out in style.

That is how women's tennis and captain Vedica Jain finished up the season on Saturday, beating cross-town rival Boston University in stunning fashion, 5-1.

With the NCAA Championships beyond the Crimson's grasp, Saturday's B.U. match marked the end of its season.


"It was a great match," Jain said. "Everyone wanted to finish the season with a victory."

Crucial to the win, tight victories came for the Crimson at the top two positions.

In a squeaker, Jain beat Terrier senior Selin Nassi, 7-5, 7-5. In part, it was revenge for the Crimson captain, as Nassi had defeated Jain in each of their past two meetings. Nassi was also voted the America East conference's Most Outstanding Player last year.

After the win, the Beren Tennis Center crowd erupted in cheers and foot-stomping for the outgoing Crimson captain, a first-team All-Ivy selection last season.

"It was great to see the support of my teammates," Jain said of her last collegiate match.
