She was a combined 3-0 in singles and doubles play over the two matches, leading the Skyhawks as a double-winner in Saturday's 9-0 win over Saint Anselm College. Barbetta teamed up with freshman Isabelle Porter (Jupiter, Florida/William T.

She is 4-4 overall in singles, including a 4-2 mark in the NE10, while she and Porter are 8-3 in doubles, including a 3-2 record in the NE10. Barbetta and Porter also paired up to reach the semifinal round at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Division II East Regional, marking the deepest run at the event in program history.
Barbetta, a two-time All-NE10 performer over her career, has posted a career combined record of 97-51 (.655) in singles and doubles play. She is 46-25 over her career in singles, including a 30-9 mark in the NE10, to go with a 51-26 career doubles record, including 29-10 in the NE10.
