DELHI, N.Y. (September 16, 2019) – SUNY Delhi women's tennis reached the halfway point of their season this weekend after hosting NAC-opponent Lesley on Saturday and Kean on Sunday. The Broncos dropped their match to the Lynx by a 9-0 score, and fell to the Cougars, 8-1. Freshman Hailey Gundersen provided Delhi its lone win of the weekend when she posted her first career win Sunday at two singles.

This weekend also wrapped up a season-opening stretch where the Broncos played six of their seven matches at home. Minus a home contest against Utica on Sept. 25, Delhi is on the road the rest of the year, starting with conference-foe MCLA this Tuesday.


The Lynx picked up doubles wins by 8-2, 8-1, and 8-0 scores. Mackenzie Landman and Jessica Biller each played mightily at one and two singles, respectively. Landman dropped her match to Maddiee Abbott by matching 6-2 scores, while Biller was defeated by Mary Pulling, 6-3 and 6-1.


The Cougars began their visit to Delhi by winning the doubles competitions all by 8-1 scores. Hailey Gundersen got the Broncos on the board when she won her two singles match versus Samantha Luu, 6-1 and 6-4. Kean, however, clinched the win with the help of shutout wins at the one, four and six spots. After a 6-1 first-set defeat, Jessica Biller played a tight second set at three singles versus Wilmeris Matias, but came up just short, 6-4.
