FPU women’s tennis beats Queens (N.Y.)

FLUSHING, N.Y. — The first NCAA Championship win in program history did not come easy, but it did, eventually, come.

Four singles matches went three sets, including one which carried all the way to a third-set tiebreak, and the proceedings lasted nearly 3.5 hours, but the No. 48 nationally ranked Franklin Pierce University women’s tennis team ultimately prevailed in the opening round of the East Regional, 4-3, over No. 42 Queens (N.Y.).

As she had in the Northeast-10 Conference title match, graduate student Estela Carra provided the decisive point for the second-seeded Ravens, as she took a three-set win at fifth singles to finish off the win.

With the victory, Franklin Pierce keeps its perfect season alive at 13-0, while Queens sees its campaign come to a close at 3-2. The Ravens advance to Tuesday’s 1 p.m. regional final.
