Women's Tennis Splits Southern MAAC Swing

April 5, 2004

Andrea Disponzio easily won her two matches at top singles this past weekend, filling in for teammate Denisa Hluchova, as Siena split a pair of MAAC matches with Loyola and Saint Peter's. Loyola defeated the Saints 5-2 on Saturday, but the Saints rallied to topple Saint Peter's 7-0 on Sunday.

Senior Betsy Brookins also won both her matches this past weekend for Siena. Brookins defeated Loyola's Gina Turturiello after Turturiello was forced to retire and earned a hard-fought three-set decision Sunday over Saint Peter's Priscilla Davis.

Siena hosts Stony Brook on Saturday at 3 p.m.
