    PISCATAWAY, N.J. (March 9, 2013) – The Rutgers women’s tennis fell to West Virginia, 6-1, in Morgantown, W. Va., at the Ridgeview Racquet Club on Saturday.

    The Scarlet Knights moved to 6-3 on the season, snapping a four-game win streak. The Mountaineers improved to 4-7.

    After dropping the doubles point, RU lost the first three contests in singles play. In No. 4 singles play, freshman Lindsey Kayati (Monroeville, N.J.) defeated Mountaineer Emily Mathis (6-1, 5-0) to earn the Scarlet Knights’ only point of the match.

    Kayati’s win gave her a 7-1 record in 2013, matching classmate Gina Li (Hillsborough, N.J.) for the most wins on the team.
