Women’s Tennis Clinches Fourth Straight CACC Tournament Berth

PHILADELPHIA – The University of the Sciences women's tennis team clinched its fourth consecutive Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Tournament berth with a 5-2 victory over Chestnut Hill at the Hamlin Center on Friday evening.  

Prior to this four-year stretch, the Devils qualified for the CACC Tournament just four times in their first 11 years in the league. 

Gabrielle Soriano and Diana Sosonkin got the evening started by sweeping their third flight doubles opponents in their first-ever match together.  

After Chestnut Hill won at No. 1 doubles, Stephanie Mazurek and Myra Anwar tied Karla Miletic and Myka Williams for the team lead with their fourth win together with a 6-2 decision at the second flight to clinch the doubles point. 

USciences would then go on to win four of the six singles matches, highlighted by Anwar and Sosonkin sweeping the fourth and fifth flight for their second victories of the evening.

Miletic and Julia James dropped just one game each at No. 1 and No. 6 singles to round out the Devils' winners. 

Miletic is now tied with Mazurek for the team lead with six singles wins, while James ranks third with five and Sosonkin ranks fourth with four. 

University of the Sciences is right back at home tomorrow to host Holy Family at 1 p.m.
