HARRISONBURG, Va., April 6, 2013 – On senior day, the James Madison women’s tennis team pulled together and defeated George Washington 5-2 in the Dukes’ final match at Hillside Courts this season.  After sweeping the doubles point, JMU won four of six singles matches to notch the win.

The Dukes improved to 8-5 this spring while the Colonials fell to 9-6.

Sophomore Taylor Pinchoff (Sylvan Lake, Mich./West Bloomfield) clinched the match with her three-set victory over Leah Pascarella at No. 1 singles.  Pinchoff fell behind after a 7-5 loss in set one, but fought for a 6-2 win in set two and a 6-4 win in set three to take the point and the team win.

Earlier in the day, Pinchoff teamed with senior Michelle Nguyen (Springfield, Va./South County) to complete the JMU sweep of doubles play, taking down Pascarella and Mimi Hamling 8-7(5) at No. 1 doubles.

Freshman Cara Wirth (Reading, Pa./Wilson) and senior Katherine Bulling (Loveland, Ohio/Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy) were responsible for sealing the doubles point for the Dukes after defeating Lana Robins and Dorota Lysienia 8-3 at No. 2 doubles.  The junior-duo of Ruxandra Andriescu (Brampton, Ontario, Canada/Turner Fenton) and Jacqueline Palmucci (Aurora, Colo./Cherokee Trail) won 8-3 over Stephanie Wei and Egle Jakuciunaite at No. 3 doubles.

Palmucci posted the first singles point of the day when she dropped Wei in two sets (6-2, 6-0) at No. 2 singles.  Wirth was next in line with her own two-set win (6-4, 6-1) over Christina Carpenter at No. 5 singles.

After the Dukes secured the decisive fourth point, Andriescu retired from her match with Hamling while up 2-1 in set three.  Senior Megan Douglass (Wilton, Conn./St. Luke’s), however, was determined to finish the final home match of her career and took down Isabella Escobar in three sets (7-6(3), 2-6, 6-4) to conclude the afternoon.

JMU now heads east for tomorrow’s (April 7) conference showdown with Old Dominion.  Doubles play begins at 2:30 p.m. in Norfolk, Va.
