WASHINGTON – George Washington women’s tennis welcomes Xavier and Richmond this weekend for a pair of home matches at the GW Tennis Center on the Mount Vernon Campus. The Colonials first host the Musketeers on Friday at 10 a.m. before facing Atlantic 10 foe Richmond on Sunday for a 1 p.m. contest.
GW (5-5, 3-2 A-10) is coming off a 5-2 win at conference opponent Duquesne on Sunday. The Colonials claimed the doubles point with a top-flight win from senior Isabella Escobar and freshman Taylor Nederlander, and a No. 3 victory from the duo of senior Leah Pascarella and sophomore Stephanie Wei. Pascarella, Nederlander, rookie Grace Egger and sophomore Christina Carpenter then took home singles victories at the Nos. 2, 3, 5 and 6 spots, respectively, to lift the Colonials to the win over the Dukes.
After going unbeaten on the weekend, Nederlander picked up her first A-10 Rookie Performer of the Week honor. She owns a team-best overall record of 14-7 and has gone 5-4 in dual-match play this spring. Nederlander is also 3-1 against league foes and has won four of her last seven matches, one of which went unfinished.
Pascarella is also 14-7 on the year and has recorded a team-best 8-2 record this spring, including a 7-1 mark at the No. 2 singes spot. She has won six of her last seven matches while she and Wei – who are 4-1 this spring – have won four of their last five bouts at No. 3 doubles. Sophomore Lana Robins also leads the Buff and Blue with 14 wins on the season and she has gone 5-5 in dual matches. She and Egger have teamed up for an overall mark of 14-5 and the pair has produced a team-best 6-2 record this spring, including 5-1 at the No. 2 spot.
Xavier (13-4) had a four-match winning streak snapped on Saturday with a 4-3 loss at Marquette. The Musketeers are 6-2 on the road this season and will head to nearby UMBC on Saturday afternoon following their match against the Colonials.
Richmond (6-8, 2-1 A-10) hosts South Alabama on Saturday before coming to GW on Sunday afternoon. The Spiders most recently fell to East Carolina, 5-2, on the road on Tuesday.
