WEST POINT, N.Y. - The Army women's tennis team is set to compete in its final fall tournament of the 2013-14 season this weekend on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26-27. The Black Knights will travel to Lehigh University for the second time this year to compete against Lehigh, Colgate and Lafayette in the two-day tournament at the outdoor Ulrich Varsity Courts and inside the Lewis Tennis Center.
Army is coming off the USTA/ITA Regional Championship in Cambridge, Mass., last weekend. Six players traveled to Harvard University to compete in the five-day invitational, including senior co-captain Jamila Paul. Paul advanced to the singles round of 32 until falling to Columbia's Kanikka Vaidya, 6-0, 6-1. Paul also teamed up with sophomore Brenna Keller to compete against 64 teams in doubles. The team scored a pair of wins over teams from UConn and UPenn before falling to Dartmouth in the round of 16.
There will be no team scoring at the Patriot League Kickoff 2013 tournament is designed so that each team can get a number of singles and double matches played simultaneously. The weekend's match is set up to integrate men's and women's tennis teams as singles and doubles units in three simultaneously competitions. Teams should field eight singles players in each singles match and four doubles teams in each doubles match, if possible.
The tournament is set to begin on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 10 a.m. and will continue through Sunday, Oct. 27. Updates will be available on goARMYsports.com as results become available.
