Troy, NY- The MCLA women's tennis program rebounded from a tough loss on Tuesday with a 5-3 non league win on the road over the Sage Gators this afternoon.  The Trailblazers move about .500 for the season as they are currently 4-3 overall.

Samantha Gawron and Anna Despart worked hard to pull out a 9-7 decision to sweep the doubles points.

In singles, Deaso defeated Sage's Melissa Estremera 7-5, 7-6 to notch her second point of the afternoon.  Gawron kept her winning streak going by earning a 6-4, 6-2 win in the fourth singles slot to clinch the match for MCLA.

Sfakianaki's number one singles match was halted due to darkness tied at one set apiece.

MCLA is back in conference action on Saturday when they travel to Johnson State for a 1pm tilt.
