NEW ROCHELLE, NY —  In a match that was replayed after being suspended due to weather earlier in the month, it was Lehman College who outlasted a pesky College of New Rochelle side in the non-conference match.  The final score at the Apex Tennis Center saw the Lightning with a 6-3 margin of victory.

After dropping the 1st and 2nd doubles competition, CNR rallied back to take 3rd singles, as sophomore Iyesogie Aghahowa (Bronx, NY) and senior Shirley Garcia (Bronx, NY) scored an 8-4 victory.

Garcia and Aghahowa kept their streak going in singles play as they won by 8-3 and 8-2 scores, respectively.  CNR battled to make it interesting at 1st singles where HVIAC All-Conference selection, senior Nancy Varughese (Blauvelt, NY) took Lehman’s Princess Roache deep into the match, before falling 8-4.

CNR finishes its season at 1-9 overall. Lehman ends its season at 4-9
