ORANGE, Calif. -- The Bates women's tennis team swept doubles play and rolled to a 7-2 victory at Chapman University on Tuesday in the Bobcats' spring season opener.

The Bobcats (1-0) earned two tough doubles wins at the first and third spots while at second doubles, first-year Hannah Sweeney (Franklin, Mass.) and sophomore Lauren Hernandez (Chester, N.J.) teamed up to win 8-0. At third doubles, first-year Haley Washington (Bloomfield Hills, Mich.) and sophomore Suzanne Elfman (Longmeadow, Mass.) edged Delara Fotovatjah and Alisa Organovich 8-7 (7-2) while at the top spot, senior captain Maisie Silverman (Brunswick, Maine) and junior Bella Stone (Concord, Mass.) defeated Vasilia Trofimova and Nicole Fouts 8-7 (9-7).

Bates increased its lead by winning four out of six singles matches, led by Silverman's 6-3, 6-4 victory over Madison Ross at No. 1 singles.

Sweeney posted an impressive 6-3, 6-2 win at third singles over Trofimova, while Hernandez defeated Anna Kaplan 6-4, 6-2 at No. 5 singles and junior Hannah Londoner (Westport, Conn.) scored a 6-1, 6-3 win at sixth singles over Raven Hampton.

Bates will play at No. 6 nationally ranked Pomona-Pitzer on Friday at 3pm Pacific time.

WHITTIER, Calif. -- Whittier College rode a 14-hit attack to defeat the Bates College baseball team 9-2 on Tuesday, in the Bobcats' third of six games played in Southern California.

The host Poets (5-3) collected six runs (five earned) on eight hits and three walks in five innings against Bates junior Justin Foley (Lynnfield, Mass.) to build a 6-1 lead, then added three more runs over Bates sophomore reliever Will Slayne's (Dedham, Mass.) three-inning stint.

Bates (0-3) was limited to five hits and no walks against Whittier starter Justin Kottinger, who gave up both of Bates' runs over six innings, and reliever Dante Mancia, who threw a perfect final three innings with four strikeouts.

Bates scored a run in the third inning to cut Whittier's lead in half, as senior Asher MacDonald (Hillsborough, N.C.) singled, senior Connor DiVincenzo (Westwood, Mass.) doubled and sophomore Will Sylvia (Newton, Mass.) drove MacDonald in on a groundout. Junior Dan Trulli (Melrose, Mass.) tagged a solo home run in the sixth inning, his third career homer.

Whittier collected 12 singles and two doubles in the game, and put runs on the board in five different innings. Matthew Macey and Michael Angulo both went 3-for-4 on the day.

DiVincenzo and MacDonald both batted 2-for-3 to lead the Bobcats.

Bates next plays at Cal Lutheran in Thousand Oaks, Calif., Wednesday at 2:30 Pacific time.

ORANGE, Calif. -- The No. 19 nationally ranked Bates men's tennis team took its spring opener handily in a 9-0 victory at Chapman University Tuesday night.

The Bobcats (1-0) won every set in singles and swept doubles play in the win. They will next play Thursday at No. 12 Pomona-Pitzer, starting at 4pm Pacific time in Claremont, California.

Following the Bates women's team's 7-2 win over Chapman, the Bates men took the courts and swept doubles play. Senior Ben Rosen (Port Washington, N.Y.) and sophomore Jacob Kauppila (Chesterfield, Mo.) teamed up at No. 1 doubles in an 8-2 victory; at No. 2, junior Josh Quijano (Los Angeles, Calif.) and senior captain Josh Leiner (Baltimore, Md.) won 8-4; and at third doubles, sophomore Vidyut Yadav (Laguna Niguel, Calif.) and junior Duane Davis (Dix Hills, N.Y.) defeated Darrus Lee and Terry Kang 8-6.

Rosen, Bates' three-time All-American, proceeded to defeat Len Kamemoto 6-2, 6-3 at No. 1 singles. That and sophomore Jacob Eisenberg's (Armonk, N.Y.) 6-3, 6-2 win at No. 5 singles represented the two closest contests, as Quijano won 6-1, 6-2 at No. 2, Leiner won 6-0, 6-2 at No. 3, Kauppila won 6-1, 6-1 at fourth singles and Yadav won every game in his match at sixth singles.
