Lady Eagles wrap season sweep of Lady Green Tennisters

In a battle of the last year co-third placers, it was the blue side that closed out their season victorious.

The Ateneo de Manila University Lady Eagles completed the sweep of arch-rivals De La Salle University Lady Green Archers, 4-1, and closed their season on a winning note, Sunday at the Rizal Memorial Tennis Center.

Only Rachelle De Guzman managed to get a win for the Taft-based netters, sweeping Rocio Climent, 6-1, 6-0.

From there, Ateneo took over the day.

La Salle’s Chang Atangan took the first set over Khrizelle Sampaton at 7-5, but the latter got the next two sets to win the second singles match at 6-2, 7-6.

Jana Hernandez and Jessica Agra then finished off Jed Aquino and Princess Castillo in straight sets, 7-6, 6-3, in the first doubles match. Afterwards, Atenro rookies Nicole Amistad and Annika Mallari overpowered Kylla Orillosa and Kiana Gacias at 6-0, 6-1 to eventually close the tie.

Season 78 Rookie of the Year Jana Pages wrapped up the rout over Jenni Dizon, 6-0, 6-3, in the final singles match.

The Lady Eagles (2-6) finishes in fourth place, while the Lady Green Tennisters (1-7) ends up in fifth.
