Mids to Host Johns Hopkins in Women’s Tennis Sunday
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Navy women’s tennis team (6-4, 0-1 PL) will host Johns Hopkins (0-0) on Sunday at 11 AM in the Tose Family Tennis Center inside the Brigade Sports Complex.
The Mids went 2-1 last weekend, falling in a close match to James Madison on Friday, 4-3, before defeating Villanova, 5-2, and Towson, 7-0, in a doubleheader on Sunday.
Wreder was named the Patriot League Women’s Tennis Player of the Week for her two singles victories against James Madison and Towson last week. Wreder earned her second career weekly award from the conference.
With her two doubles wins, Keller moved into a tie with 2014 graduate Erin Snook for first place on Navy’s career doubles wins list with 61.
Keller is also second behind only Snook in school history in career singles wins (79) and career combined singles and doubles wins (140).
Other current players on the Navy top-10 lists include Rogers, who is tied for ninth in singles wins (49), and senior Claudia Mackenzie, who is fifth in doubles wins (56) and seventh in combined wins (98).
Keller and Hodge are a team-best 14-4 in doubles matches this season and have played primarily at the No. 1 position in dual matches. Mackenzie and sophomore Emily Louie-Meadors are 12-3 in doubles matches and play at the No. 2 position.
Johns Hopkins’ match at Navy will be its 2018 spring dual season opener.
The Blue Jays advanced to the NCAA Division III Quarterfinals last season, while also winning their 12th consecutive Centennial Conference championship.
The Mids and the Blue Jays will be meeting for the first time in series history on Sunday.
It will be Johns Hopkins’ first match against a Division I opponent since falling to Delaware, 6-1, on April 17, 2011.
Navy’s next match day will be Sunday, Feb. 25 when the team hosts George Mason (2-2) and Howard (1-3) in a doubleheader.
