Lions Look To Tame #37 Sun Devils

March 13, 2018


The LMU women's tennis team (8-2) will travel to Tempe, Ariz. this weekend to battle the #37 Arizona State Sun Devils (9-3) in an 11:00 am match at the Whiteman Tennis Center on Saturday, March 17th.

Though the Lions and Sun Devils have not met in recent years, both teams have been playing extremely well this season, with ASU taking their fourth straight contest this past weekend against Colorado, and LMU gaining their sixth straight win on Sunday against UC Santa Barbara.

Arizona State not only carries a #37 overall ranking according to the ITA, it also boasts three ranked singles players and three ranked doubles pairs in its starting lineup. Lauryn John-Baptiste is the top ranked singles player, checking in at #83. LMU counters with #30 Veronica Miroshnichenko, the current WCC Singles Player of the Week, and a pair of ranked doubles teams, including #33 Miroshnichenko/Voracek, who were named WCC Doubles Team of the Week for the second time in three weeks earlier on Tuesday.

After this weekend's duel, the Lions will travel to Pepperdine to rival the Waves at noon on Saturday, March 24th, to start WCC play.
