Women’s Tennis Comes Back from 3-0 Deficit to Overcome Jefferson in CACC opener for Margiasso's First Career Win

PHILADELPHIA – The University of Sciences women's tennis team overcame a 3-0 deficit to come back and defeat Jefferson in the two teams' Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Opener on Saturday afternoon, giving Head Coach Nick Margiasso his first career victory at the University.

After Jefferson took all three doubles matches by at least three games, the Rams won the first two singles matches to finish; at the third and fourth flight.

Sophomore Stephanie Mazurek sparked the comeback, sweeping her first flight opponent for her first career win at No. 1 singles.

Freshmen Myka Williams and Diana Sosonkin then tied the match at 3-3 by sweeping their respective second and fifth flight foes in their first career matches as Devils.

That meant the match came down to No. 6 singles, and it was Julia James coming through for USciences with a 6-4, 6-3 triumph to complete the comeback.

The result moved the senior into a tie for fifth in program history with her 30th career singles victory.

University of the Sciences looks to build off this performance when it hosts defending CACC champion Wilmington this upcoming Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 6 p.m.
