Providence, R.I. - On Friday, March 15, senior Marisela Aviles-Duron (Tegucigalpa, Honduras) from the Providence College women's tennis team broke Brooke Rubin's `02 55 career wins recorded at the No. 1 doubles position to become the All-Time leader for career wins at No.1 doubles with 56 wins. Aviles-Duron tied the record on Tuesday, March 5 with a win against Saint Joseph's University.
Aviles-Duron defeated Gabi Kaldan and Nicole Rydzewski from Sacred Heart with doubles partner junior Maria Clara Bernardez (Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic) (8-7, 4). The pair now holds the record for most partner wins at the No. 1 position with 44 wins in the last three seasons.
"Mari and Maria have worked tremendously hard for this record," Head Coach Kyle LaBranche shared. "They have a very unconventional doubles style defined by their tenacity, touch, ability to scramble, and unparalleled familiarity with each other. I've never met two closer teammates and their relationship carries onto the court where each one knows what the other will do. We are grateful to have two tremendous leaders as apart of our program."
The senior captain is now the leader for most combined wins at No. 1 singles and doubles with 128 combined wins.
Earlier this season on Saturday, Oct. 20, Aviles-Duron topped Rubin's record at No. 1 singles with 66 career wins. Since then Aviles-Duron has added seven wins for a total of 73 career wins at the No. 1 singles position.
Aviles-Duron and the Friars are back in action on March 23 and 24 when they travel to Syracuse, N.Y. to take on Syracuse and Seton Hall to kick off their conference play. The Friars will play Syracuse on Saturday, March 23 at 3:00 p.m. before taking on Seton Hall on Sunday, March 24 at 10:00 a.m.
