PHILADELPHIA - The Quakers return home after a west coast trip when they host George Washington, Wednesday at 3 p.m. at the Levy Pavilion.
Penn played four matches out west last week, going 2-2. The Red and Blue beat UC-Riverside 7-0 and Gonzaga 5-2, but dropped matches to Loyola Marymount (5-2) and 48th ranked UC-Irvine, 5-2.
The No. 2 doubles team of freshmen Jason Magnes and Mark Milbrandt went 3-1 last week, losing only to UC-Irvine. Magnes also went 3-1 at No. 5 singles on the trip. Sophomore's Phil Law and Jason Lin also went 3-1 in singles to improve to 8-1 and 9-1 respectively this spring.
The Colonials are 2-6 on the season, however head coach Nik DeVore knows that doesn't tell the whole story. "George Washington's record belies their talent," said DeVore "They are a good team, but have played a lot of tough opponents this spring."
A win would improve Penn to 10-2 on the season, their best start since opening 11-2 during the 2004-05 campaign.
