WASHINGTON – George Washington women’s tennis returns home following a three-match road swing to host Atlantic 10 foe Saint Louis and regional rival Towson. The Colonials will face off against the Billikens at the indoor East Potomac Tennis Center on Monday at 8 a.m., then open outdoor action at the GW Tennis Center on the Mount Vernon Campus against the Tigers on Tuesday at 2 p.m.
GW (3-3) is riding a three-match winning streak after opening A-10 play with wins over Massachusetts (5-2) and Fordham (4-1) last weekend. Sophomore Lana Robins and freshman Grace Egger, who both went undefeated in singles and doubles to help GW to consecutive victories, were named the league’s Performer and Rookie Performer of the Week, respectively.
Senior Leah Pascarella owns a team-best dual-match singles record of 5-1, while Robins is 4-2 and freshman Taylor Nederlander is 3-2 this spring. The double team of Egger and Robins are 4-1, including 3-0 at the No. 2 spot, and Nederlander and senior Isabella Escobar are 2-0 in the first flight.
Saint Louis (7-4) is coming off a 1-1 weekend in which it fell to Cleveland State (4-3) before bouncing back to sweep Lindenwood-Belleville (7-0). SLU is led in singles by Madison Cook's undefeated 5-0 record, in addition to Madeline Jolly, who is 5-2, and Stephanie Hollis with an 8-3 mark. Hollis and Brooke Urzendowski are 4-1 as the Billikens’ top doubles team.
Nearby Towson (5-3) comes to GW on a two-match skid after falling to Navy and Howard, both by 6-1 scores. Sophie Lesage, who competes at the Nos. 4 and 5 spots, is undefeated this spring with a 7-0 record, while Cailey Easdale is 3-1, Lorena Ferrer is 4-3 and Nisha Shah is 5-3 on the spring. The Tigers are led in doubles action by the No. 3 duo of Easdale and Ferrer (3-1) and the No. 1 team of Ayana Down and Nani Lizana (3-0).
