Women's Tennis Looks to Continue Ivy Success

PHILADELPHIA – The Quakers will look to continue their Ivy League success, as they host Yale today at 2 p.m., and face off against Brown tomorrow at noon. Both matches will be played in the Levy Tennis Pavilion.

The No. 53 women’s tennis team will hope to improve on their 11-4 overall record, along with their undefeated 1-0 Ivy League tally. They beat Princeton last weekend at home, 5-2. Yale is also 1-0 in the league, as they beat Brown 6-1 last weekend. It will be a close match with the Bulldogs. Last year, the Quakers won by a close 5-2 margin, and Yale is returning much of their line-up. Brown, who is 5-9 overall, has struggled in Ivy League play, and lost to the Quakers last year, 6-1.

Freshman Ekaterina Kosminskaya will lead the team at No. 1 singles. Kosminskaya, who is ranked No. 112 in the nation, is 10-3 in the No. 1 spot this season, including a 1-0 Ivy League record.

The women’s tennis team is scheduled to start today’s match against Yale at 2 p.m., with tomorrow’s match against Brown scheduled to begin at noon.
