CHARLESTON, S.C. – The College of Charleston women’s tennis team will continue nonconference play for the next four matches as the team hosts Wichita State, Cornell, Albany and UMBC. Up first for the Cougars is Wichita State on Monday, March 18 at 1 p.m. (ET) at the College of Charleston Tennis Center at Patriots Point in Mt. Pleasant, S.C.
CofC (7-5) is coming off of a successful weekend when the team topped Jacksonville State and East Tennessee State but fell to No. 34-ranked Penn State.
The Shockers (5-9) are off to somewhat of a slow start but have faced some very difficult opponents such as No. 11-ranked Texas, No. 20 Purdue and No. 19 TCU.
The doubles point between the Cougars and Wichita State will be broadcasted live tomorrow on the Charleston Sports Network via www.cofcsports.com.
“We’re excited to continue this stretch of seven straight home matches against Wichita State who is predicted to win their conference championship again this year,” CofC Director of Tennis Angelo Anastopoulo said. “It will be a real challenge physically and mentally to manage the team this week but we’re very excited to be playing on the Charleston Sports Network tomorrow. Dennis (Trapani) always does a great job on the production side and gives our fans around the world a chance to see us play.”
There will be little time to rest for the team after tomorrow’s match before they face off against Cornell on Tuesday, March 19 at 1:30 p.m. (ET) at Patriots Point.
