NIAGARA, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo senior Rachel Ollis and junior Vanessa Lam-Tran nabbed a 7-6 (7-4)) victory at first doubles on Friday afternoon but the Knights fell to NCAA Division I Niagara University, 5-2.
Ollis and Lam-Tran took down the top doubles flight while seniors Anika Pornpitaksuk and Lauren Salzano earned a default win at third doubles as Geneseo earned a point for taking two of three doubles matches. Jumping ahead with a 6-2 first set win, Ollis nearly earned a victory at fourth singles, but fell 3-6, 6-1, 10-6 in a super-tiebreaker third set. The Knights earned a point by default at sixth singles, but ultimately fell to the Purple Eagles.
Geneseo moves to 4-3 in dual matches and will resume play against State University of New York Athletic Conference rival Fredonia on Friday, Oct. 13. The match was suspended after doubles play on Sept. 7.
