The UConn women’s tennis team continues their fall season this weekend at the National Tennis Center in New York. The Huskies, led by seniors Marie Gargiulo, Lucy Nutting and Jennifer Learmonth, will look to continue lead by example in their singles and doubles matches.
Heading into this weekend’s invitational in New York, head coach Glenn Marshall’s team seem primed to move forward with their recent success. Despite falling behind early in the doubles matches against Quinnipiac last week, the Huskies were able to outlast their inter-state rivals.
The entire team is full of talent and raring to go this weekend. Freshmen Shea Flanagan and Emma Alderman continue to impress as well. Flanagan was victorious in both the singles and doubles, along with Learmonth, last Monday.
Despite falling behind to the Bobcats on Monday, Marshall explained how pleased he was with his team to comeback.
“We lost to Quinnipiac last year by a score of 6-1, so this was a great win for us,” said Marshall.
“We lost the doubles point, but I was happy that the team responded very strong in our singles matches, winning five of the six,” continued Marshall.
With the entire Huskies team contributing each week, they should continue to excel this weekend in New York. As the spring season rapidly approaches, improvement every week is pivotal to another solid year.
