ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- The Navy women's tennis team wraps up the 2013 regular-season campaign on Thursday when it takes on future Patriot League member Loyola, Md., in Baltimore, beginning at 3:00 PM.
The Midshipmen enter the match with the Greyhounds as owners of a 22-4 overall record and have tied the school record for most wins in a season (22) with the 2011 team. Navy has won 20 of its last 21 matches dating back to Feb. 2.
Loyola, Md., which will join the Patriot League prior to the 2013-14 season, is 12-5 this season and is coming off a 6-1 loss to Towson on Tuesday.
Three Midshipmen have already reached the 20-win plateau this year, led by freshman Logan Antill's (Butler, Pa.) 23 wins, which ranks fourth on the Navy single-season victories list. Her next win will move her into a tie for first on the list with Darien Sears (Jr. / Silver Spring, Md.) and Erin Snook (Jr. / Tampa, Fla.) during the 2011 season and Gabby Winter (So. / Orlando, Fla.) during the 2012 campaign.
Snook, who owns a 13-3 dual-meet record and is 50-12 in dual meets during her career, has a 22-10 overall record and is Navy's career leader with 69 victories. Emani Decquir (Sr. / Sacramento, Calif.) has set a new career high with 20 victories, ranking seventh on the Navy single-season wins list. Decquir has 66 career wins.
Other regulars in the Navy lineup include Sears at No. 3 singles (17-11 overall), Stefanie Ton (Sr. / Milpitas, Calif.) at No. 5 singles (19-9 overall) and Katie Porter (Fr. / Matthews, N.C.) at No. 6 singles (14-3 overall).
Antill and Sears lead Navy in doubles action with a 12-6 record. Decquir and Sam Droop
(Fr. / Hilton Head Island, S.C.) are 8-8 in doubles play.
The Midshipmen will be off this weekend, before heading to the Patriot League Championship in West Point, N.Y., on April 26-28. The Midshipmen will likely be the No. 2 seed when brackets are announced by the league at a later date.
