Denis Gostev | Baruch Athletics

Baruch College’s sports teams continued a strong stretch of dominance over the past two weeks, especially on Oct. 12 with seven teams in action. On Oct. 5, the women’s Bearcats tennis team played Hunter College and lost a tightly contested matchup by a score of 4-5. 

Hailey Feuer continued her flawless stretch in singles play, winning both of her matches 6-0, and improved her singles record on the season to 8-0. She teamed up with Lejla Redzematovic in a doubles matchup and winning that one as well, 8-1. Lauren Kraker and Regina Kelley also won both of their matchups. 

The Bearcats resumed their schedule against York College, and swept their opponents 9-0. Kraker won 12 straight sets, Feuer and Redzematovic swept their doubles matchups and Feuer was named CUNYAC Player of the Week for the fourth time this season. 

The team improved to 3-1 in the CUNYAC conference. 

On Oct. 12, the busiest day in Baruch College Athletics with seven teams having a scheduled matchup, the Bearcats defeated the William Patterson Pioneers 6-3. Feuer and Redzematovic won their ninth consecutive doubles matchup this season. 

Justina Camaj won both of her singles matchups, 6-3 and 6-0, while Feuer won a singles match and Natalie Ibelhaupt won her singles match. 

The Bearcats wrapped up their regular season on Oct. 17 against Kean University. 

On Oct. 12, the women’s Bearcats volleyball team played another two matches and swept both of them. 

It was the fourth consecutive sweep for the Bearcats. 

In the first match, against the Lehman College Lightning, the Bearcats improved to 4-0 in the CUNYAC Conference heading into the last stretch of the season. Hadjeb threw in 14 assists and Claudia Moi totaled 12 assists. 

In the second match, against Medgar Evans College, Yijia Cai had a career high 13 aces, Hadjeb had 16 assists and Chen had 12 kills. 

On Oct. 15, the winning streak came to an end. Against the NYU Violets, the Bearcats were swept, and moved to 12-5 on the season. 

Sengara reached a career milestone during the match, recording her 1000th career kill, while posting 10 kills in the match. 

Hadjeb was named CUNYAC Player of the Week and totaled 10 assists. Ultimately, their efforts were not enough. 

On Oct. 7, the men’s Bearcats soccer team fell to William Patterson University 2-0. Despite six saves from goalkeeper Kellen Sela, the Bearcats were unable to get any significant offensive momentum, as the team totaled nine shots all match. 

The Bearcats then lost their second match in a row against Hunter College on Oct. 9. 

Despite being down 4-1 late into the second half, the Bearcats rallied to reduce the deficit to one goal. Cormac Foley scored again but the Bearcats were unable to close the gap. 

The highly contested match saw the two teams totaling 31 shots. 

Then on Oct. 12, the Bearcats lost a third consecutive match against the Lehman College Lightning, 1-0. 

The offense once again was unable to crack the Lightnings’ defense, as they only recorded 6 shots, compared to Lehman’s 24 during the match. 

The team fell to 4-2 in the CUNYAC standings. Sela continued his stretch of solid goalkeeping, totaling a season-high eight saves. 

The men’s Bearcats took on Ramapo College and lost their first match of the season by a score of six matches to three on Oct. 14. 

Abhinav Srivastava won both of his singles matchups, 6-2 and 6-4, as did Christopher Tham with 6-2 and 6-2 and George Arteaga, 6-2 and 6-4. 

However, their efforts were not enough as the team eventually was downed. 

The Bearcats have an extended vacation until March 5, when they challenge Yeshiva University.
