Bulldogs open fall with strong showing at Quinnipiac Invite

SMITHFIELD, R.I. – The Bryant University women's tennis team opened its fall schedule with 19 victories at the Quinnipiac Invitational.

Coach Cilli's Comments

"We had a lot come out of this weekend. Great wins, close losses and matches where we could have competed better. We took A, B, and C flight Consolations namely because the girls were able to make adjustments which helped them compete better.  It's a starting point I am happy with. Now we take that information and work towards playing smarter at Army in two weeks."


  • Freshman Yasemin Boru (Boca Raton, Fla.) won the A consolation draw with victories over players from Providence, Fairfield and Sacred Heart.
  • Sophomore Arianna Oropeza (Weston, Fla.) claimed the B consolation draw with wins against Providence, Fairfield and Quinnipiac.
  • Junior Aleksi Gottlieb (Plantation, Fla.) won the C consolation draw with victories over UConn, Boston University and Sacred Heart.
  • Freshman Leanne Kendall (Lakeville, Mass.) advanced all the way to the semis in the D draw, posting victories over Sacred Heart and Quinnipiac.
  • Sophomore Haley Pollock (Warwick, R.I.) advanced to the finals of the E consolation final.
