HARMER, PA – The University at Buffalo women's tennis team won all six singles matches on Saturday afternoon as the Bulls defeated Towson, 6-1.  With the win, UB improves to 4-1 on the year.

Towson took the doubles point with wins at first and second doubles, but UB did come away with a win at three as Emel Abibula and Hsin-Yuan Shih won 6-2.

The Bulls then dominated doubles, winning all six matches in straight sets.  Abibula got the first win at four with a 6-1, 6-3 victory and then freshman Nikoleta Antoniou-Karademitrou won at two, 6-2, 6-4.  The Bulls clinched the match at six as senior Sanjana Sudhir won, 6-4, 6-1.

Shih then picked up a win at five, 6-1, 6-3 and fellow freshman Pia Schwarz won at three, 7-6, 6-4.  Senior Chantal Martinez Blanco capped off the afternoon with a 6-4, 7-5 win at first singles.

"This was a nice way to rebound after a tough loss yesterday," said head coach Kristen Maines.  "We still need to work on our doubles, but I was very pleased with how responded in singles today."

The Bulls will return home next Saturday when they host Mercyhurst at 12:30 pm at the Miller Tennis Center, the first of two home matches next weekend for UB.
