The fall athletic season is coming to a finish in the cold Ithaca winter, but one team fortunate enough to end their season’s schedule in a slightly warmer climate is the women’s tennis team.
The Big Red netters wind their season to a close this weekend in Williamsburg, VA, where they will compete in the ITA Individual Regional tournament at William & Mary. The contest begins tomorrow and will last through Tuesday.
Cornell will be looking to improve on its last showing, and the squad has had plenty of time to get in shape for this weekend’s tourney. At the ECAC championships, held three weeks ago, head coach Angela Rudert’s charges came away with a 12th place finish. The Red did manage a win over host Rutgers, but dropped matches to Boston U. and Ivy foe Columbia.
Senior captain Ngozi Amobi will be leading Cornell into the weekend’s events, and hopes to spearhead a rebound from the disappointment of the ECAC tourney.
The opposition will no doubt be talented at Regionals, but the Red has the capability to return to chilly Ithaca with some more notches on its belt.
