April 18, 2014
WASHINGTON – George Washington women’s tennis returns to action on Saturday morning when it welcomes Atlantic foe George Mason for its regular-season finale and Senior Day match. First serve at the GW Tennis Center on the Mount Vernon Campus is slated for 11 a.m.
The Colonials (7-5, 4-2 A-10) return to the court for the first time in over a week after winning a pair of comeback matches over Xavier (4-3) and A-10 rival Richmond (4-3) on Friday and Sunday, April 4 and 6. GW dropped the doubles points in both bouts, but fought back to claim four singles wins en route to consecutive victories over the Musketeers and the Spiders. The Colonials’ win over Richmond marked the first time in four seasons that they defeated their league foe.
Sophomore Lana Robins paces GW with an overall singles record of 16-9 and a 7-5 mark this spring. Pascarella and freshman Taylor Nederlander are both 15-8 overall while Pascarella is 9-3 on the spring season, including 8-1 at the No. 2 spot, and Nederlander is 6-5.
The No. 2 doubles team of Robins and rookie Grace Egger is 14-6 overall and 6-3 in dual matches, and the No. 3 duo of Pascarella and sophomore Stephanie Wei has gone 5-4 overall and 4-2 in the third flight.
George Mason (8-15, 0-3 A-10) also closes the regular season on Saturday and is coming off a 1-1 weekend at home in which the squad fell to Loyola (Md.), 4-2, but blanked North Carolina A&T, 7-0. Esu Erdenebat leads the Patriots at 7-5 overall and 5-3 this spring. Ashley Delaney owns an overall singles mark of 10-11 and she is 8-9 in dual matches. The doubles team of Delaney and Sofia Santa Maria are 4-2 overall.
GW earned a dominating 7-0 sweep over George Mason at home last season with all of the Colonials’ singles wins coming in straight sets.
A crucial point is on the line for the inaugural Revolutionary Rivalry between GW and George Mason. The Patriots currently lead, 8-7, in the competition between the new A-10 rivals. The schools also face off in a lacrosse contest on Friday afternoon at the GW Lacrosse Field.
