PHILADELPHIA All season long, the men’s tennis team has had big matches. They’ve faced the top-ranked team in the nation, and multiple teams in the top 25. And it’s all been leading up to this weekend for the Quakers.
The Red and Blue will travel to New Haven today, to take on Yale, and follow that up with their most highly anticipated match of the year, as they travel to Providence to take on the Bears. Last year, the two teams split the Ivy title, with Brown getting the NCAA bid, after beating Penn in playoff match, 4-3.
The Quakers were on the road last weekend as well, and started their Ivy season off right, as they beat Princeton, 5-2. This will be the Ivy opener for both Yale and Brown. The Bulldogs are 6-7 so far this season, as the Bears are 13-6, and ranked No. 69 in the nation. The Quakers stand at No. 74, and hope that they can improve on their 7-11 record on the road this weekend.
Today’s match against Yale is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m., with tomorrow’s match against Brown in Providence also scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.
