The Saint Peter's University women's tennis team will host a trifecta of home matches this weekend, beginning with their spring conference opener against the Marist College Red Foxes on Friday, followed by a non-conference date with the Loyola (MD) Greyhounds on Saturday, and ending with the Wagner Seahawks on Sunday.

 

The Red Foxes - Marist women's tennis team is 1-2 on the year with losses coming to Big East members Seton Hall and St. John's. Their lone win came by way of a 7-0 sweep against Rider, on October 7. The Red Foxes were picked to finish third by MAAC tennis coaches. Last year in Poughkeepsie, NY, the Peacocks were defeated by Marist, 7-0, on April 2. The last time Saint Peter's was able to pull out a point against the Red Foxes was on February 25, 2012. They were able to win two matches at No. 1 and No. 5 singles.

 

The Greyhounds - Loyola (MD) women's tennis team is undefeated with wins against St. Bonaventure and Howard University. Last year, on February 11, the Peacocks fell 6-1 with the lone win coming at No. 6 singles.

 

The Seahawks - Wagner women's tennis has wins against St. Francis Brooklyn and MAAC foes Rider and Monmouth. Their lone loss is also against Siena College from the MAAC. They play Bucknell University on Saturday, February 11 prior to Sunday's meeting with the Peacocks. Last year, the Peacocks and Seahawks squared off twice, once in the fall and once in the spring. Both of those matches resulted in a 6-1 loss for the Peacocks but alumni Lucia Radovic won both of her matches at No. 2 and No. 1, respectively.

 

Last Time Out - The Peacocks fell to Providence College, 7-0, on February 6 in Jersey City. Azuri Hughes was the lone Peacock to win a set during the match.

 

Up Next - The Peacocks will continue their homestand with a dual match, along with the men's tennis team, against Coppin State on Saturday, February 17 at 12 noon.
