Road trip for women’s tennis team

Filed under: Uncategorized — sturner11 @ 3:23 pm

The University of Miami women’s tennis team will travel to Texas this weekend to face a tough No. 7 Baylor and No. 21 TCU this Saturday and Sunday.

Miami, currently holds an 8-1 record and has moved up in the rankings to No. 10.

The Hurricanes, who fell in last week’s polls to 15th, are now in the Top Ten for the first time all season.

Having lost twice to Baylor in 2008, the University of Miami is looking to avenge a 4-1 setback suffered at the hands of the Bears in the NCAA “Sweet 16”  Tournament.

Despite that loss and a 4-1  defeat that came earlier  that year, Miami leads the all-time series against Baylor 4-3.

The last time the Hurricanes met with TCU was back on March 15, 2002 when the Horned Frogs took a 5-2 victory over Miami.

However, Miami leads the short series between the two teams 2-1 and is looking to extend its neraly flawless record this weekend in Texas.
