The Gloucester CC Women’s Tennis Team is off to a 3-1 start to the season heading into a busy weekend of play. The Roadrunners will faceoff with unbeaten Ocean CC on Thursday afternoon and then head to the National Invitation Tournament over the weekend where eight junior college teams will compete. The team scored its most dramatic win on Monday afternoon with a 5-4 win over Region 19 rival Mercer CC. After winning two of the three doubles matches against Mercer the team dropped 3 of the first 5 singles matches and with only one match left on court the match was tied at 4-4. Freshman Alina Crumb came through with a three set win at #4 singles to seal the match in the Roadrunners favor.

Over the weekend of September 17-18 the team traveled to New York for two matches. On Saturday the Roadrunners defeated Onondaga CC 8-1. Freshman Julie Guy scored a three set win in that match that lasted nearly three hours. On Sunday the team traveled to Broome CC and scored another 8-1 win. Sophomore #1 singles player Avery Forte got her first win of the season in the match. The Roadrunners doubles teams have also helped the team get off to strong starts in their dual matches. The teams of Joanna O’Donnell / Kirsten Buscher (#2 doubles) and Julie Guy / Jackie Hanley (#3 doubles) are both undefeated for the season. During the trip the team was also able to take a tour of Syracuse University and bonded as a team.
