Today in SU Sports 4/22/11

SU Women's Tennis Sweeps UConn

In the final match of the regular season, the Syracuse Tennis team destroyed the University of Connecticut at the Drumlins Tennis Center this morning. A few of the more dominating performances came from seniors Simone Kalhorn (singles), Christina Tan (singles), and Jacquelynn Tang (doubles) who were honored before the game for their service to the team throughout the past four years. The Orange finished the regular season 16-6 and 8-1 in conference and will compete in the Big East tournament next weekend in Indiana.

Syracuse Softball Splits Doubleheader at UMass

The Syracuse Softball team split a pair of highly contested games in Amherst versus UMass, today. The first game featured a strong pitching performance from Syracuse starter Jenna Caira. She went seven innings, gave up only one hit, no earned runs, and struck out 15 UMass batters. The Orange won that game 2-1 with help from Lisaira Daniels' 3 for 4 performance. Caira had a similar appearance in the second game, only giving up one run in six innings, but the Syracuse bats just couldn't produce as the Orange fell 2-0.

Boston University Too Much for Men's Rowing Team to Handle

The Syracuse University Men's Rowing team, ranked eighth in the country, fell short to Boston in every race today. Syracuse competed against both Boston and Columbia. The Orange placed second in three races and third in another. Boston, the six ranked team in the country, had an extremely successful day, winning every race. The good news is that the Syracuse varsity eight only finished a second behind the Terriers.

"I thought BU rode a little more intelligently in the first 1000 than us," Syracuse Coach Dave Reishman said after the race. "We got the lead in the first 1000 but we paid the price for it by being tense and letting the waves bounce us around a little bit."

The Orange Rowing team will have another shot at Boston in three weeks at the Eastern Sprints in Worcester, Massachusetts.
