George Washington Women's Tennis Opens Season at Princeton Quad Tournament
Colonials Gain Valuable Experience in Matches with Princeton, Penn and Columbia
Sept. 22, 2002
Princeton, NJ -- Freshman Estee Bartell's (San Diego, CA/Torrey Pines) first collegiate victory was the highlight of a tough opening weekend for the GW Women's Tennis team. Playing against stiff Ivy League competition in Princeton, Penn and Columbia at the Princeton Quad Tournament this weekend, the Colonials managed six total victories.
"The players gave great efforts against some of the tougher competition we'll face this season," explained coach Helen Andrews. "The teams we faced have excellent Intercollegiate Tennis Association rankings."
Andrews also felt these matches would provide experience for this weekend's Maryland Invitational, where the Colonials will face other top teams including Richmond, Penn St. and Syracuse. The tournament will be held at the new Tennis Center at College Park, the same venue where the A-10 Championships will be held, April 17-19.
