2012-13 Schedule

The Siena women's tennis team released its 2012-13 schedule today, a slate that begins with the annual Siena Fall Classic September 8-9.

"Our out-of-conference schedule is the toughest since I came to Siena," fourth-year head coach Andy Christodoulou said. "It will prepare us well for the MAAC action in the spring. We will play one game at a time, and focus on improving every day."

The Saints lost half their team to graduation, but return a talented core and welcome three heralded freshmen. The team tied for fourth in the MAAC in 2011-12, but missed out on the MAAC Tournament due to a tiebreaker.

"Every team in the MAAC has improved, and so did we." Christodoulou said. "It's imperative that every point, game, set and match is played out with controlled aggression, focus and determination."
