July 22, 2014
WASHINGTON - The George Washington women's tennis team will compete in five tournaments during the 2014 fall season in preparation for a competitive 2015 spring slate.
Highlighted by the ITA All-American Championships and the USTA/ITA Atlantic Regional Championships, the Colonials' schedule also features a pair of annual local events as well as one new tournament.
"The fall schedule is designed to push our players and give the entire team a chance to prove itself," said second-year Head Coach Greg Munoz. "We will be tested throughout the season, which will help us prepare for an ambitious spring."
GW opens its campaign at Towson's Tiger Classic, which will be held from Friday, Sept. 12 - Sunday, Sept. 14 at the Towson Center Tennis Courts in Towson, Maryland. The Buff and Blue will face five programs throughout the three-day event, where scoring goes to five points with one doubles match and four singles tilts.
The Colonials then remain in the District for the Georgetown Classic from Friday, Sept. 19 - Sunday, Sept. 21, held at the GW Tennis Center on the Mount Vernon Campus in addition to Georgetown Visitation Prep. GW will travel to Pacific Palisades, California from Saturday, Sept. 27 - Sunday, Oct. 5 for the ITA All-American Championships, held at the Riviera Tennis Club. With more than 300 competitors, the annual tournament features the largest field of any collegiate tennis championship and is comprised of three rounds of competition - pre-qualifying, qualifying and main draw play.
From Friday, Oct. 10 - Sunday, Oct. 12 the Colonials will compete at the Cornell Fall Invitational at the Reis Tennis Center in Ithaca, New York. Players from competing teams will be placed in one of three singles brackets and one of two doubles draws.
