Nearly three weeks after their last match, the D'Youville women's tennis team will take the court with three matches this weekend, beginning with a rematch against Daemen on Friday. The Saints then hit the road on Saturday to take on Fredonia, and wrap up the weekend with another home match, taking on East Coast Conference foe Queens. 

Last Time Out – The Saints dropped their season opener, 7-0, to Daemen on March 20, at the Miller Tennis Center in Williamsville, N.Y.  In the top singles match of the night, junior Alisson Meissner was topped by Daemen's Frida Rubio (0-6, 0-6), while sophomore Julia Clapper fell by an identical score (0-6, 0-6) to Christina Stasiuk in the second singles match. Sophomore Faith Falkowski was not able to do much better against Kayla Nguyen (0-6, 0-6), while junior Taylor Nash lost to Courtney Otis by a 1-6, 1-6 score. The final singles match of the night saw sophomore Katrina Whipple battle Hannah Pagano before falling to her Wildcat counterpart (4-6, 4-6). The Saints fell in both doubles matches as well.

Daemen at a Glance – The Wildcats also haven't hit the court since their March victory over D'Youville. Daemen will embark on a busy weekend, flip-flopping their weekend schedule with the Saints by facing Queens on Saturday and Fredonia on Sunday.  

Fredonia at a Glance – The Blue Devils will kick off their 2021 campaign on Saturday with their home match against D'Youville. It will also mark Fredonia's first action since the fall of 2019 when they went 10-4, including two wins over D'Youville, 7-0 on August 30, and 8-1 on September 25. 

Queens at a Glance – The Knights will also be getting their season underway this weekend with matches at Daemen and D'Youville. Queens was originally scheduled for a match on Saturday, April 3, at Saint Thomas Aquinas but it was postponed. The Knights rolled to a 10-1 mark in the 2019-20 season before it was shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
