NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Miami posted wins in the top three singles flights and won two of three doubles matches Saturday, enroute to a 5-2 victory over Boston University. The match was played at the Cullman-Heyman Tennis Center on the campus of Yale University.
Miami (4-6) opened play with a win at No. 1 doubles for third straight match. Christine Guerrazzi and Alix Thurman teamed for an 8-2. A Boston University win at No. 2 left the deciding point up to Christiana Raymond and Chloe Heerden, who posted an 8-5 decision.
The RedHawks quickly added to the lead when Thurman routed her opponent at No. 2, 6-2, 6-0. But the Terriers closed to 2-1 when they claimed the match at No. 6. The RedHawks took the next two matches -- a 6-2, 6-1 win by Nimisha Mohan and a 7-5, 6-1 victory by No. 5 Ana Rajkovic -- to take the win.
The teams split the final two matches -- BU winning 6-1, 6-4 at No. 4 before Raymond won 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 in the top flight.
Miami concludes its East Coast weekend Sunday when it faces 27th-ranked Yale.
