BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Hannah Morrill paced the Harvard women's tennis team over three days at the Adidas Winter Invitational at Indiana to open its 2014 spring slate.
Morrill started the spring right where she left things in the fall, downing each of her singles competitors, including a ranked opponent, for a 2-0 record. The senior earned victories over Indiana's Gabby Rubenstein, who ranks tied for 118th, 2-6, 6-2, 1-0 (10-5) and Vanessa Foltinger of Marquette, 7-5, 6-3.
Morrill teamed up with Monica Lin on the doubles court. The senior, freshman partnership started off with a 7-4 downing of Ana Pimienta and Vanessa Foltinger (Marquette), followed by a 6-3 setback to Sophie Garre and Kayla Fujimoto (Indiana). Morrill and Monica Lin toppled Alecia Kauss and Shannon Murday (Indiana), 6-3, to close out the invite.
The Crimson saw six players go 1-1 in singles play. June Lee, Sylvia Li and Danielle Mirda notched wins on day one of competition while Spencer Liang, and Amanda Lin tallied victories on the second day of competition. Amy He also competed in singles play, but dropped each of her matches including a 6-4, 6-2 setback to No. 86 Garre of Indiana.
Harvard had each of its doubles teams earn victories. To wrap up the invite Monica Lin and Spencer Liang, who rank 34th, paired up for the first time in 2014 and bested Oregon's Nicole Long and Jasmine Minor, 6-2, while Lee and Morrill posted a victory against the Ducks pair of Sofia Hager and Marlou Kluiving of Oregon, 7-6 (9-7).
