Syracuse dominates Temple in road win

Syracuse evened its road record on the season at 2-2 with a sound beating of the Temple Owls Sunday.

Syracuse upped its record to 9-2 Sunday with an impressive road rout of the Temple Owls, 6-1.  The Owls had an impressive home record of 3-1 before falling to the Orange.

The lone Syracuse loss came at the hands of Temple freshman Yana Mavrina at the No. 4 singles in a hard-fought, three-set victory against senior co-captain Christina Tan.  

Fellow co-captain Emily Harman earned a 6-2, 6-3 victory, playing at the No. 1 singles position for her first time all season. That position is usually reserved for junior Alessondra Parra, who played in the No. 2 singles position and defeated her opponent in three sets.  

Harman also recorded an 8-3 win at first doubles alongside freshman Maddie Kobelt. The pair has now won eight matches as teammates. Kobelt continued her impressive freshman year with a 6-4, 6-3 win in the third singles spot.

Fellow freshmen Eva Raszkiewicz and Aleah Marrow paired up at third doubles and secured the Orange the point with an 8-2 win over junior Mellana Cramer and freshman Jordan Batey. Marrow defeated Cramer again 6-2, 6-3 in the No. 6 doubles slot.

This win is the Orange’s second road victory, which evens their away record at 2-2. With the win, SU proved that it is fully capable at winning away from Drumlins Tennis Center. That knowledge could prove an important when the Orange play a stretch of eight road games through March and April.

Syracuse plays their next match at home Thursday against Cornell. The girls will take on the Big Red at 6:30 p.m. Cornell holds a 6-2 record currently, but has yet to play a true road match.
