NORTON, Mass. – The Wheaton College women's tennis team wrapped up day one of the New England Women's Intercollegiate Tennis Tournament (NEWITT) on Friday evening with a 4-8 record overall. The tournament was split between two sites at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Mass. and also at Amherst College in Amherst, Mass.

Senior Sarah Crom (Bremen, Germany/International School of Bremen) and sophomore Izzy Gorham (Durham, N.H./Oyster River) highlighted the Lyons' efforts with a 3-0 performance in the Chris Davis B Flight against Roger Williams University.

Crom won her singles matchup by a 6-2, 6-2 score over Hawks' freshman Emma Limburg (New London, N.H./Proctor Academy), while Gorham earned a hard-fought 5-7, 6-4, 12-10 victory versus sophomore Adriana Maconochie (Easton, Conn./Joel Barlow). As a doubles tandem, Crom and Gorham posted an 8-6 decision against their opposition from Roger Williams.

Wheaton co-captains Alexandra Marlowe (Mesa, Ariz./Mountain View) and Lyndsay Cooke (Bakersfield, Calif./Bakersfield Christian) went 1-2 overall versus Amherst sophomore Sarah Monteagudo (Miami, Fla./Miami Killian) and senior Isabel Camacho (New York, N.Y./The Spence School) in the Gail Smith A Flight. Marlowe and Cooke fell 9-7 in doubles play, while Cooke picked up the only win for the Lyons in the matchup over Camacho by a 6-2, 6-3 score.

Freshman Amanda Brazell (Las Vegas, Nev./The Meadows School) and senior Morgan Bell (Gloucester, Mass./Pingree School) went 0-3 on day one versus Middlebury. Sophomores Gracie Stark (Studio City, Calif./Highland Hall) and Caroline DiNicola-Fawley (Brattleboro, Vt./Brattleboro Union) were also dealt the same fate against Wesleyan.

In their doubles match, Bell and Brazell played to a tough 8-6 loss versus Middlebury's number one team in the tournament consisting of sophomore Lauren Amos (Tucson, Ariz./Salpointe) and freshman Lily Bondy (Brooklyn, N.Y./Beacon).
