The men’s and women’s tennis teams traveled to Erie’s Westwood facility this past Friday for a match-up against Roberts Wesleyan.

On the women’s side, all competitors — Laura Lopez, Julia Hellstern, Tatiana Batalla, Roxana Yeh, Anastasiya Dasik and Jelena Vucenovic — came away with victories over their respective opponents.

Roberts Wesleyan currently sits at 10-9 after the loss, while Edinboro continued their undefeated record.

The same would happen on the men’s side where competitors — Vitor Albanese, Mauricio Santos, Daniel Fernandez, Mateus Santos, Kevin Mboko, and Kolja Hein — all won as well. Up against a more active Roberts Wesleyan team that has a 9-3 record, the Scots still came away with a convincing victory.

Both doubles teams for the men and the women would win, shutting out the Redhawks.

The men will have two match- ups this coming week against Abbey University and George Mason, while the women are scheduled to face Erskine Tuesday.

On the following Sunday, the men would take on West Chester at 11 a.m. The results? Another dominate win for the Scots, who almost ran the table for the second time on the weekend until West Chester’s third doubles team won 8-5 against Edinboro’s Charlie Rushing and Aidan Henken.
