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.
