Freshman Duo Reaches Finals at WGCDC

Newport, R.I. (September 14) -- Freshmen Kristen Carbone (Taunton, Mass. / Coyle-Cassidy) and Hannah Riley (Ellington, Conn. / Ellington) reached the final of the Flight A main draw at the Women's Grass Court Doubles Championships on Saturday, as the Greyhounds placed tied for fifth out of eight teams in the competition.

Carbone and Reilly cruised to the finals, where they met The College of the Holy Cross's doubles pairing of Gini Peck-Philips and Taylor Stathis. The freshmen held their own against the Division I opponents, and held seven championship points before falling 9-8 (1-0) in a tiebreaker.

Meg Hall (Pembroke, Mass. / Notre Dame) and Paige Gilet (Chelmsford, Mass. / Chelmsford) paired together to reach the championship of the Flight B Consolation Draw, but also fell in a tiebreaker 9-8 (3-0).
