Women's Tennis Closes Season With Win

At No. 2 singles, freshman Sanja Bajin defeated Terrier sophomore Christina Causway, 7-5, 6-2. Bajin was down 5-4 in the first set, but came back to win nine out of the next 11 games to close out the first set and dominate the second.

Junior Sanaz Ghazal, sophomore Fleur Broughton and freshman Lara Naqushbandi all continued the Harvard dominance by winning at Nos. 3, 5 and 6 singles, respectively.


While Ghazal and Naqushbandi both put their opponents away early in two sets, Broughton was taken to a third set by Terrier freshman Alana Marcu. After losing the first set, 6-3, Broughton came back to win the second set, 7-6, and then dominate in the third, 6-0.

The only loss came at No. 4 singles. B.U. junior Carrie Rose beat sophomore Jennie Timoney, 6-1, 6-3.

There were no doubles played in the match because of impending final exams for both teams.

Harvard finishes up the season tied for second in the Ivies with Penn at 5-2. Princeton captures the title with a perfect record of 7-0 and advances to the NCAA championship. Harvard was the defending Ivy champion.

The Crimson ends the season with a 12-11 overall record.

"We have a very young team," Jain said. "All in all, it was a very positive season."
