PHILADELPHIA – The University of the Sciences women's tennis team made its home debut at the Hamlin/Hecht Center one to remember, as it defeated Post 5-2 to improve to 2-0 in Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) play on Saturday afternoon. 

USciences (3-2, 2-0 CACC) won the doubles point, as well as four of the first five singles match.

Linder and Mazurek paired at No. 2 doubles for their second straight CACC victory, 6-3, while James and Gamarnik moved to a perfect 2-0 together with a 6-1 decision at the third flight. 

Linder and Mazurek then both extended their singles winning streak to four matches, with each improving to a team-best 5-3 on the season. 

Linder's fourth flight went three sets, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, while Mazurek's swept her fifth flight opponent. 

James also won in straight sets, 7-1, 7-6 (3), at No. 6 singles, while Miletic earned a comfortable 6-2, 6-3 decision at the sixth flight in her first CACC singles match of the season. 

The result moved Miletic into second in program history with 37 career singles wins. 

In the most tightly contested match of the afternoon, Gamarnik narrowly missed out on a 2-0 day with a 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 loss at No. 2 singles.
