BSU Women’s Tennis Season Recap

The Bridgewater State Bears Women’s Tennis team had a 9-5 overall season record in the 2022 Fall season with a 6-2 Little East Conference record.  

The Bears started off the season with a loss against Regis College on 7-2 sets. Their first two wins came against LEC opponents, Suffolk University and Castleton University. Next, they would reach a tough stretch, dropping 3 of 4 against Roger Williams, and conference opponents Rhode Island College and the UMASS Boston. Things smoothed out and the team began October with a six-gamed winning streak with the game, making it the LEC Women’s Tennis Championship.

The Bears were in third place in the standings in the LEC and thus faced the #6 seed the Salem State Vikings in the Little East Tournament Quarterfinal where they won on 5-0 sets. The Bears would then lose to #1 seed Rhode Island by the score of 5-0 in the semifinals on October 20th.  

For the season, sophomore Madeline Von Ruden and junior Abigail Ramer were selected to the All-Little East Second Team for both singles play and doubles play. Von Ruden was 6-6 in singles play and Ramer played all but one match and posted a 6-5 singles record. Von Ruden and Ramer were the top doubles team for the Bears, posting a 7-6 record together.  

Sophomore Meghan Lotti represents the Bears on the LEC Sportsmanship Team. Lotti went 8-4 at sixth singles in her first collegiate season while on the third doubles team with a 6-1 record, partnering with either graduate student Vanessa Rosa or sophomore Rebecca Hamel.  

“Our expectations were basically just to go in and do the best we could with what we had,” Senior Mackenzie Silveira said about what she expected at the beginning of the season, after losing key seniors and graduate students, such as Olivia Sweeney, who dominated in her final season with BSU Women’s Tennis. 

“We did the best we could and we gave it our all in our semi-finals match. Even though we came short it was close and we gave the reigning champions the run for their money, so I’m happy with how the season went,” Silveira said on the loss to Rhode Island College in the LEC Semifinal.
