The Hamilton College Continentals kicked off the spring portion of their 2017-18 season with two NESCAC losses in Maine this weekend.

Hamilton dropped 9-0 decisions at Bates College on Saturday afternoon and at Colby College on Sunday afternoon. Despite the team scores, the Continentals had a couple singles matches nearly go their way.

Jane Haffer '19 extended Bates' Maisie Silverman to three sets (1-6, 6-2, 6-1) in first flight singles. Audrey Chor '21 fell in three sets (3-6, 6-2, 10-8) against Colby's Gabby Venditti in second flight singles. Earlier in the match, Chor and Ajla Karabegovic '21 were edged 9-7 by Gabby and Lydia Venditti in first flight doubles.

Hamilton returns to the courts on Tuesday, March 20 when the Continentals take on Oberlin College in Florida.
