Women’s Tennis Beats Post 4-1 in CACC First Round; Ties Program Record with Third Straight CACC Semifinals Appearance

PHILADELPHIA – Just a day after tying a program record with five Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) victories in an eight-game league schedule, the University of the Sciences women's tennis team has matched yet another program record with a third straight CACC Semifinals appearance after defeating Post 4-1in the First Round on Tuesday evening at the Hamlin/Hecth Center. 

USciences last made three consecutive CACC Semifinals from 2005-07, the first three years the CACC Women's Tennis Tournament was held.

USciences got off to a quick start with two 6-1 victories in doubles play, at the first and third flight. 

At No. 3 doubles, Julia James and Stephanie Mazurek won a second straight match together, moving to .500 on the year at 3-3, while Karla Miletic and Abbygail Gamarnik improved to 11-4 together after clinching the doubles point at the first flight. 

James is now tied for sixth in program history with 22 career doubles victories.

Mazurek and Miletic then both won in singles play.

Mazurek dropped just one game at the fifth flight for a fifth consecutive victory, improving to 10-4 this year for what was the clinching point.

Miletic is now .500 at No. 1 singles, 5-5, after a straight set decision.

Also winning was Danielle Paran, who won a second consecutive singles match, 6-1, 6-1 at the fourth flight.
