PHILADELPHIA – The University of Pennsylvania women’s tennis team continues its fall schedule, traveling to Williamsburg, Va. to play in the 22nd Annual Tribe Invitational at William & Mary this weekend.
Penn is coming off a weekend of hosting the 18th Annual Cissie Leary Memorial Invitational at the Hamlin Tennis Center. The Quakers found success in singles competition during the home tournament, most prominently in a runner-up finish by senior Sol Eskenazi.
After winning the singles title the previous year, Eskenazi finished as runner-up, winning four matches to make the final. The senior also won two doubles matches during the course of the weekend.
Also having success in the top flight was sophomore Kana Daniel, who made it to the quarterfinals before dropping a match.
In the second flight of singles, sophomore Luba Vazhenina and freshman Lina Qostal advanced to the quarterfinals before being defeated. Qostal was playing in her first collegiate matches.
The Tribe Invitational, which began in 1993, is in its 22nd year of competition and for the first time the format of the tournament will change from a tournament to a team style of play. Each team will play three singles and three doubles matches at the invite.
Doubles matches will take place on Friday and Saturday, meaning each team will compete in two doubles matches on one of the two days. One singles match will be played for each team on every day of the event.
