No. 43 Women's Tennis Faces UMass Before Long Road Stretch
NEW YORK - The No. 43 Columbia women’s tennis team will be taking on the UMass Minutewomen at the Dick Savitt Tennis Center on Saturday, March 8 starting at noon.
The Lions improved to 6-2 after beating Kansas State and then ranked No. 43 Memphis last weekend. Tina Jiang boasts the best record for the Lions, with an unblemished 6-0 record in dual play. Jiang is also one-half of the team’s only undefeated doubles pair. Her and Crystal Leung are currently ranked No. 28 and boast a 7-0 record in duals. Kanika Vaidya, currently ranked No. 57, has dropped only one match at the No. 1 singles spot in the dual season to another nationally ranked player.
The Minutewomen are currently 5-5 on the season, with three of those losses coming from Ivy League teams. UMass was only able to take one point from Brown and was shutout by Harvard and Dartmouth. They will look to bounce back after dropping three out of their last four matches, two of which were conference play.
This will be your last chance to see the Lions at home before they go on a three-week road stretch before Ivy League play.
