PHILADELPHIA – The University of the Sciences women's tennis team has begun Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) play 3-0 for the first time since at least 2008 (as far back as match-by-match records go) after sweeping Caldwell on Saturday afternoon at the Hamlin Center.  

After winning No. 1 and No. 2 doubles by identical 6-1 scores (there was no No. 3 doubles due to Caldwell only having five players), the Devils swept the five singles matches without dropping a set. 

Stephanie Mazurek and Danielle Paran both twice on the afternoon. 

After teaming with Myra Anwar for the first time this season at No. 1 doubles, Mazurek dropped just three games at No. 2 singles. The sophomore now leads USciences with four singles victories, and she is also tied for the team lead with three doubles wins. 

Paran also has three doubles wins after pairing with Gabrielle Soriano for the first time this year at No. 2 doubles, and she did not drop a single game at the third flight for her first singles victory of the season. 

Karla Miletic, Julia James and Diana Sosonkin all also won their third singles match of the year, at the first, fourth and fifth flight. 

Notably, the victory moved James into fifth in program history with the 31st of her career. 

University of the Sciences faces off with defending CACC regular season champion Goldey-Beacom at the Delcastle Tennis Center on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at 3 p.m.
