This weekend, Cornell women’s tennis hosted Youngstown State University and George Washington University at the Cornell Showdown, a round-robin style event that included both singles and doubles matches.

On Saturday, Cornell swept George Washington in doubles. At the No. 1 position, junior Dena Tanenbaum and freshman Lizzie Stewart won their game in two straight sets. Tanenbaum felt that she and Stewart played aggressively and conducted themselves well on the court.

“We focused a lot on serving and volleying and putting the ball away,” she said. “We’ve been working on that for the past couple weeks and executed pretty well.”
