Team of the Week: Women’s Tennis
This week’s QBSN athlete of the week is not an athlete, but rather a team. The Women’s Tennis team was selected as this week’s QBSN team of the week after winning the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament in their inaugural season in the conference. The win gave the Bobcats an automatic berth in the NCAA tournament. The Bobcats drew the 11-seeded Stanford Cardinal in the first round of the tournament.
The Bobcats took down the Stags of Fairfield in a thrilling match to clinch the conference title. The Bobcats win was powered by 5 out of 6 wins in singles play, and 2 out of 3 wins in doubles play. Jaqueline Raynor sealed the win by defeating Sharissa Ryan of Fairfield 5-7, 6-0, 6-3.
The team’s conference win is the third conference win this year for the Bobcats. The team will head across the country for their first round matchup against Stanford on Friday, May 9.
