Guilarte, a junior from Barquisimeto, Venezuela, had a busy and successful week in going 3-1 in singles play and helping Sweet Briar rack up a 3-1 team record against non-conference competition. Guilarte, who did not compete in doubles matches last week, won singles outings at the #5 and #6 ladder positions. She claimed a 0-6, 6-4, 10-5 victory over Angelle Thonton to help the Vixens to a 6-2 win over Berry College. Guilarte then bested Sophia Mita, 6-0, 6-0, in SBC's 9-0 triumph over Allegheny. Both of those victories came at #6 singles. Guilarte stepped up a position to #5 in an 8-1 win over New Jersey City University. She defeated Sara Zorzan, 6-1, 6-2. Sweet Briar came up on the short end of a 9-0 result to #21 Mary Washington to close the week. Guilarte took Riley Smith to three sets at #6 singles before fall 1-6, 7-6 (7-5), 10-5. It marked the first time a Vixens' player took a competitor from UMW to three sets since 2003. For the season, Guilarte is 10-3 in all singles matches including 4-2 at #6 and 1-0 at #4 and #5.
