NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – The Saint Joseph’s women’s tennis team will be seeded sixth in this week’s Atlantic 10 Women’s Tennis Championship, set to begin on Thursday at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason, Ohio.

The Hawks will meet 11th-seeded George Mason at 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, with the winner advancing to take on third-seeded George Washington in the quarterfinals at 1:00 p.m. on Friday.

Surpassing last year's record-setting number for wins with 15 so far this season, Saint Joseph's has blended its roster of veterans and newcomers into one of the most complete teams in recent history. Winning seven straight going into the conference tournament, the Hawks have been bolstered by junior Aurora Davis at the top seed, posting a team-best 21-6 singles record. Teaming with freshman Alex Zachem at the top doubles flight, the duo combined to go 9-5.

Sophomore Kristina Eisenbrand and Devi Jadeja have solidified the second and third flights, showing flexibility to move in the lineup, with the pair tallying nine and eight singles win, respectively. Proving to be a consistent player at the fourth flight, junior Kelly Mulquin ranks second on the team in singles wins with 18, while classmate Lauren Roy returned to the lineup after a semester abroad to add experience.

Posting a career year so far, sophomore Arianne Polatnick has recorded a 15-2 singles mark for SJU, playing out of the sixth seed, rookie Claire Minnoe has made a strong impression in first season with an 8-6 mark.

Senior Michele Vona and freshmen Sarah Contrata and Mary-Margaret Ewens have continued to provide depth and talent in the final flights and could be called upon to contribute this week.

The Atlantic 10 Women’s Tennis Championship features a four-day, single-elimination format. The winner of the Championship will receive the Conference’s automatic bid to compete in the NCAA Tournament.
