LANCASTER, Pa.—The No. 6 Bulldogs tacked on a second win in their first weekend of regular competition when they swept No. 18 Franklin & Marshall 9-0 on Saturday.
The hard work the team put in throughout the fall showed on the courts; the Bulldogs won each match handily in three straight games.
Sophomore Lucy Beecroft had a marathon first game at the No. 1 spot, racking up a 17-15 score. Beecroft's persistence paid off, and the second and third frames were finished in an easy 11-4, 11-9, respectively.
The Yale women will try and sustain their momentum on Tuesday when they travel to Providence and take on Ivy League competitor No. 11 Brown.
