PRINCETON, N.J.—In a matchup of two undefeated Ivy League women’s tennis teams, No. 46 Princeton claimed a 6-1 decision over Columbia Sunday at Jadwin Gym. The loss ends Columbia’s four-match win streak and drops the Lions to 10-6 overall and 2-1 in Ivy League play, while Princeton improves to 15-3 overall and 3-0 in league play.

 

First-year Jennifer Kerr registered Columbia’s lone point of the day as she defeated Princeton’s Stephanie Schrage 1-6, 6-4, 10-6 at No. 2 singles. With the win, Kerr improves to 18-7 on the year.

 

After Princeton took the doubles point with two wins, the Tigers secured the win with victories at No. 1 singles, No. 5 singles and No. 3 singles. Princeton led 5-0 before Kerr tallied her victory. Columbia senior Adi Milstein closed the day by dropping a close 3-6, 7-6 (7-4), 10-7 back-and-forth match to Princeton’s Nathalie Rodilosso.

 

Princeton represented the second nationally ranked team that Columbia has faced this year.
