Women's Tennis vs. St. Lawrence
Sunday, March 4—12 p.m.
Boston Sports Club—Babson Park, Mass.
Babson and St. Lawrence will meet for the first time in at least two decades on Sunday afternoon.
SCOUTING THE SAINTS
Saint Lawrence (1-2) is coming off a 9-0 loss at No. 22 MIT on Saturday. The Saints won just two games in the top three singles flights and were blanked in two of the three doubles matches against the Engineers. Sophomore Katherine Apt is 2-0 at number three singles this spring, while senior Lia Petersen and sophomore Haley Sherrad have both gone 2-1 in dual-match singles. Apt and first-year Caroline Reilly have also combined to win both their matches at number two doubles.
SCOUTING THE BEAVERS
Babson (1-0) returns to the courts for the first time since defeating Endicott in early October. The Beavers returns six players from a team that went 10-8 overall and reached the NEWMAC semifinals last season. Senior Claire Foster went 12-7 in singles and 12-9 in doubles last year, while classmate Kylie Kam finished with a 9-8 mark in singles and was 10-8 in doubles. First-year Alexa Tutecky won three of four singles matches and enters the spring a with an overall record of 7-1 in all doubles action.
NEW HOME FOR THE BEAVERS
After calling Farwell Courts home for the last 52 years, Babson will move into a new tennis facility across campus this spring. The new facility features eight lighted courts with court-side bleacher seating, as well as additional seating along the wall overlooking the playing surface. The Beavers will open the new courts against Emerson on March 27.
The Green and White collected one first-place vote and was picked to finish second behind MIT when the NEWMAC released its preseason coaches' poll back on February 15.
INSIDE THE NUMBERS
The Beavers have won after doubles in each of their last 11 wins going back to the 2015-16 campaign.
