Musketeers Down Saint Bonaventure in A-10 First Round
April 20, 2007
Xavier (15-6) jumped out to the 1-0 lead by winning the doubles point in convincing fashion. Kate Lohner and Jeanette Feider shut out their No. 3 doubles opponents and Jackie Vilines and Kara Courtney downed Yolande Callaghan and Anna Perevenzetseva by an 8-3 count to take home the doubles portion of the competition.
Alicia Papa made quick work of Vanessa Close (6-0, 6-0) in the No. 6 singles match and Feider followed that up with an equally dominant victory over Eileen Horgan at No. 5 singles.
Jackie Vilines clinched the victory for XU with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Yolande Callaghan at No. 1 singles, propelling the Musketeers into the quarterfinal.
The Musketeers have finished in the top-four in each of the last four years and a win over UMass tonight will clinch a fifth-straight semifinal appearance.
