Panthers Stay In Milwaukee To Host Round Robin
Oct. 10, 2012
MILWAUKEE - The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee women's tennis team will stay home in Milwaukee this weekend to host the Panther Round Robin.
The event will include Bradley and Green Bay and runs Saturday and Sunday at two sites. Saturday's matches will be played indoor at the Pleasant Valley Tennis Club in Jackson to escape the expected bad weather. Then Sunday, weather permitting, matches will be held at Glendale Nicolet High School.
The schedule includes doubles matches Saturday morning and singles contests through the afternoon and early evening Saturday. Then Sunday there will be an additional round of singles play beginning at 10 a.m. with a final doubles round at noon.
"I am very excited to be hosting an invite this fall," head coach Sean McInerney said. "The format is going to allow us to compete as a team and start looking down the line and supporting each other during the matches. This will be a great opportunity to play some solid competition in a format that we will be in the entire spring."
The Panthers have already had a number of strong performances this fall. Freshman Dana Shannon won a singles championship at the Gopher Invitational while Maddy Soule and Christina Colarossi teamed up to win the top doubles flight at the DePaul Invitational.
