After participating in the Army Invitational this past weekend, the UConn women’s tennis team travels to Hamden to face Quinnipiac.
UConn has enjoyed recent success at Quinnipiac already this fall, winning the A, B and C Flight singles at the Quinnipiac Invitational in mid-September.
The Huskies’ top players struggled this weekend in West Point, N.Y. In the first singles, Maxie Weinberg lost in straight sets 6-2; 6-2 to Seton Hall’s Chloe Sher in the round of 32.
In the first singles, Srna Stosljevic performed well but lost to Seton Hall’s Hannah Liljkevist in straight sets in the round of 16.
Freshman Emma Alderman continues to be one of Glenn Marshall’s biggest assets this season, as she advanced to the finals where she took on Stony Brook’s Adesuwa Osabouhien.
Lucy Nutting played well for the Huskies in the second singles, progressing to the quarterfinals.
Other notable standouts moving forward for UConn are Shea Flanagan and Jen Learmonth who took part in the singles event over the weekend. Alex Bergman and Marie Gargiulo also worked tirelessly before falling to players from Seton Hall and Stony Brook, respectively.
For doubles, UConn will rely on the contingents of Alderman and Nutting along with Weinberg and Stosljevic.
