NEW YORK, N.Y.—No. 48 ranked Dartmouth won five of the six singles matches to notch a 5-2 decision over the Columbia women’s tennis team Saturday at Dick Savitt Tennis Center. The contest marked Columbia’s final home dual match of the 2017 season, while the team went through senior day festivities for senior Vivian Cheng.

After Columbia took the doubles point, Dartmouth won three straight singles matches beginning with No. 5 when Racquel Lyn won a 6-2, 6-3 decision over Cheng. Jacqueline Crawford followed with a 7-6 (5), 6-2 win over Columbia sophomore Andrea Kevakian and Kristina Mathis won a 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 decision over Columbia junior Rima Asatrian.

Columbia first-year Ali Pollack stopped the drought as she claimed a come-from-behind 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 win at No. 4 singles to pull the Lions within a 3-2 deficit.

But Dartmouth won the final two singles matches as Allison McCann notched a 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 win over Columbia first-year Renee Ren at No. 6 singles to clinch the team win and Taylor Ng followed with a hard-fought 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-4 decision over Columbia junior Alexandra Solovyev.

Columbia took a 1-0 lead as it claimed the doubles point with wins at No. 2 and No. 3 doubles. Junior Adi Milstein and Solovyev teamed for a 6-2 win over Dartmouth’s Schroeder and Lin and Pollack and Cheng won a 6-4 decision over Dartmouth’s Crawford and Kiven.

Dartmouth improved to 15-4 overall and 3-2 in the Ivy League.

Columbia (5-14, 1-4 Ivy League) is back in action next weekend when it travels to Brown (Saturday, April 22) and Yale (Sunday, April 23). First serve for both road matches is at noon.
