Below is the preview for Women's Tennis match vs. Saint Joseph's, however that match has been postponed until a later date.
PHILADELPHIA - After going 1-2 at the VCU Invitational, women's tennis returns home for a cross-town rivalry match with Saint Joseph's on Wednesday at 4 p.m. The Quakers (2-2) are coming off a weekend in which they picked up a convincing 5-0 victory over Norfolk State, and came within one match against UNC-Wilmington, eventually falling 3-2, for the second loss of the weekend. Over the weekend, No. 14 Connie Hsu continued to impress as she went 3-0, while only allowing three games. Hsu now maintains a season record of 27-2. Jaime Yapp-Shing picked up a victory at number three singles against UNC Wilmington and posted a victory in doubles with Alexa Ely in the match against Norfolk State. Yapp-Shing is currently 7-5 on the year in singles play.
The upcoming match versus Saint Joseph's will be the Hawks first since the culmination of the fall season. Saint Joseph's (1-3) played in four team matches to end the fall semester. They started off with a win over Rider, but were then dealt consecutive 6-1 defeats at the hands of Delaware State and Towson. The Hawks finished up the three game losing stretch with a 7-0 loss against Delaware.
Saint Joseph's and Penn have yet to meet up in any individual matchups during the fall season, however Penn did send two players to compete in the Saint Joseph's Invitational in the fall. Freshman Lauren Bridges competed at number three singles and won two matches before dropping her semi-finals match. Senior Rose Schlecker competed in the number four singles draw and won three consecutive matches before falling in the tournament finals.
A year ago when Penn hosted Saint Joseph's, the Quakers posted a 7-0 victory against the Hawks. The Quakers did not drop a set in either singles or doubles as they rolled to the win. The Quakers will be looking for similar results from a year ago as they begin a six-match home stand on Wednesday.
