The William Smith tennis team picked up its second dual match victory in as many tries, topping St. John Fisher 9-0 at the HWS Tennis Center this afternoon.

The Herons (2-0) swept the doubles points. The first singles pairing of senior Amanda Slack and junior Casey Kennedy faced the stiffest challenge, defeating Elena Vahl and Marissa Rotondo 8-5. Sophomores Hallsey Leighton and Remy Raevsky won at second doubles, while junior Joanie Hilton and sophomore Kiara Ocasio were victorious at No. 3.

In singles play, Slack again faced the most challenging road to victory, winning her first set 6-4 over Vahl, before closing out the match 6-0. No other Heron lost more than three games in her match, including 6-0,6-0 victories by Kennedy at No. 2, Ocasio at No. 3, and Raevsky at No. 6.
