ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – Saturday went perfectly for the St. Bonaventure women's tennis team on the first day of their SBU Fall Classic.

In singles and doubles matches against Niagara and Roberts Wesleyan, the Bonnies went 21-for-21 on the day, claiming seven doubles wins and another 14 in singles.

Sophomore Penelope Abreu and freshman Amelia Haley set the tone at the top two spots in the St. Bonaventure lineup. The duo posted straight set victories at No. 1-2 singles, respectively, in both the morning match against Roberts Wesleyan and the afternoon match against Niagara.  

Haley and fellow freshman Amara Young went 2-0 in their doubles matches on the day.

The SBU Fall Classic will continue Sunday with round robin play. The event, which is being contested at both the St. Bonaventure outdoor courts and the SBU Fitness Center, is individual play only.
