Both the Cornell men’s and women’s teams most probably chose to take I-90 on their way to their meets this weekend.

But while the latter turned off the road near Providence, R.I., for the Brown Invitational, the foremer stuck it out until Boston, Mass., for the annual ECAC Championships.

The women last competed at the Cissie Leary Invitational at Penn on September 25. Sophomores Piper Lucas and Daniela DelPrete both fought their way to first-round victories.

In the doubles, Daniela and sister Alex defeated Jennifer Stewart and Michael Rozas of Dartmouth in the first-round.

As for the men, junior Greg Artzt led the club at the Yale Invitational, coming out on top in the ‘A’ flight of the singles bracket. In the final he dismissed the Elis’ David Goldman a week after falling to his hands during the Cornell Invitational.

Also faring well at the event was freshman Julien Chang, winner of the singles ‘D’ flight.

In the doubles, juniors Stefan Paulovic and Carl Thomsen teamed up to defeat Dartmouth’s Neil Bobba and Jessie Paer for the ‘B’ flight crown.

The men next hit the court the 20th of this month, hosting the Cornell Fall Indoor Invitational, while the women head to their own ECAC Championships next weekend at Rutgers and Princeton.
