Toms River East upended in SCT tennis


Despite Jamie Breunig’s lone bright spot for Toms River East — a 6-3, 6-0 first singles victory — in the opening round of Shore Conference Tournament play, the No. 16 (4-3) Raiders were upset by the No. 17 Bengals who preserved their spotless record, improving to 11-0 on the season with this 4-1 win.

Barnegat’s Colleen Anderson improved her personal resume to 11-0 with a 6-3, 6-1 second singles performance and was followed in suit by Marlena Brazill in the third singles slot, whose difficult trail to victory came by scores of 7-6 (7-2), 5-7, and 7-6 (7-2), improving her 2012 mark to 8-3.

The doubles pairing of Erin Law and Melody Samuels persevered with a 7-5, 6-1 showing, while the partnership of Emily Maina and Jenn Rochette saw a second doubles showcase fall in its favor by a mark of 6-1, 6-3.

For its efforts Barnegat is “rewarded” by earning a date with the top ranked Holmdel Hornets on September 25th.
