The Sacred Heart tennis team fell to the UConn Huskies, 5-0 in dual match action Wednesday afternoon. The Pioneers picked up a win at #1 doubles by senior Julianne Kasinow (Wall, NJ) and junior Darcy Demers (Norton, MA).

Kasinow and Demers posted an 8-3 win over Kelly LoRusso and Alison Campitiello at #1 doubles. The team of sophomore Kristina Chao (Needham, MA) and junior Elizabeth Harrinigton () lost a hard fought 9-8 (10-8) decision at #2 doubles to Emily Herb and Lauren Wilmarth.

Demers led Herb at #2 singles, 6-4, 5-2 but the match was halted due to darkness. freshman Rebecca McMullin (Brighton Victoria, Australia) lost the first set at #1 singles to LoRusso, 7-6, before her match was also halted.

The Pioneers are back in action this weekend hosting the New England Championships.
