Women's Tennis Set to Travel to Bowdoin For NESCAC Championship


MEDFORD – The #18 Tufts women’s tennis team will travel to Brunswick, ME this weekend to compete in the NESCAC Championships at Bowdoin College. The Jumbos have drawn the #5 seed and will face off against fourth seeded and #10 nationally ranked Middlebury on Friday at 10:30 am.

The women have compiled a 9-8 record this year with a 5-4 conference mark.  The five NESCAC wins include a 5-4 win over conference championship qualifier Trinity earlier this season.

The Jumbos took on Middlebury on April 25 but weren’t able to top the Panthers, falling 7-2.  In last year’s conference tournament the Jumbos also drew Middlebury in the opening draw, but fell 5-1.

The winner of the Tufts Middlebury match will take on #1 seeded Amherst at 8:00 am on Saturday morning in second round play.
