March 19, 2003 

CLAREMONT, CA - The seventh-ranked Amherst College women's tennis team opened its spring slate in California with a 9-0 loss to second-ranked Emory University and a 6-3 win over sixth-ranked Pomona-Pitzer. Both matches were played on the Pomona-Pitzer campus. 

Shaking off Sunday's whitewash loss to Emory, the Jeffs swept all six singles matches in Monday's win at Pomona-Pitzer, which improved Amherst's overall record to 8-2. Sophomore Rachel Holt (New York, NY), the 11th-ranked singles player in Division III, led the way with a grueling 7-5, 4-6, 6-4 win over Pomona-Pitzer junior Kelli Howard (Sioux City, IA). 

Amherst returns to action Wednesday at 2 p.m. at Division I foe Cal State Fullerton.
