Women's Tennis to Open Ivy Play against No. 32 Princeton

PHILADELPHIA - The Penn women's tennis team opens its Ivy League season Saturday when they travel to Princeton. The match is slated for noon at the Tigers' Lenz Tennis Center.

A season ago, the Quakers finished 2-5 in Ivy play for a fifth-place tie with Dartmouth and Cornell, while Princeton topped with standings with Harvard, both 6-1. In their last contest, the Tigers topped Penn, 7-0, on Mar. 28, 2009, but the Red and Blue have won three of the past four meetings.

Last Saturday, Penn (4-8) closed out its non-conference matches with a 6-1 loss to Boston University. Senior Jacqueline Wong earned Penn's lone win in singles play, competing at the No. 4 position.

Junior Alexa Ely and sophomore Daniela DePaoli lead the squad with five singles wins this spring, while freshman Jules Rodin and sophomore Emily Wolf each have four.

Princeton (13-5) comes off a 5-2 win over Rutgers on Thursday. The defending Ivy champs have won nine of their past 11 matches.
