For the first time, the MAAC Tennis Championships will be limited to the top-four conference finishers this season. The Siena women's tennis program will be one of those four teams.
The Saints clinched a spot in the Championships by virtue of their thrilling 4-3 win over Saint Peter's Sunday, and other league results this weekend. The MAAC Championships will be held Wednesday April 20 and Thursday April 21 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York, N.Y.
"I am very proud of the ladies for this great accomplishment," head coach Andy Christodoulou said. "This was one of our team goals at the beginning of the season, and everyone has worked very hard to make it happen. Yesterday's dramatic victory was the perfect way to secure a bid."
The Siena women's tennis team currently holds an 8-4 record this season and a 3-0 league mark. They return to action Thursday at archrival Marist at 3 p.m.
