Opening Serve: The Mount women will face the Rams this Tuesday. The women are coming off a successful weekend at the Bucknell Invitational, which saw a couple of second place finishes.

Quick Hits on the Bucknell Invitational: The Mount women competed in the Bucknell Invitational this past weekend. Sophomore Taylor D'Agostino had her best finish of her career, with a 2nd place finish in Flight C Singles. Senior Renee Deane also finished in 2nd place in Flight B Singles.

About the Rams: Shepherd is coming off a 9-0 loss to Chowan University this past Saturday.

About Last Year: The Mount women won 6-1 last year. All three doubles teams rolled to victories to take an early 1-0 lead. Then the Mount went on to win five of the six singles to cruise to an easy win in Emmitsburg a year ago.

Same Old, Same Old: The Mount returns all but one starter from last year. The starting five all return from last year, minus Lauren Clark (Colt's Neck, NJ/ Red Bank Catholic).  The team features a slew of veteran experience, with five upperclassmen. The team is spear headed by seniors Kelly Conroy (Tallahassee, Fla./ John Paul II), Renee Deane (Cape Coral, Fla./ Cape Coral), and Carly Landini (Newark, Del./ Archmere Academy).

Dynamic Duo: The duo of juniors Sam Pinchoff (Sylvan Lake, Mich./ West Bloomfield) and Liz Rossi (Flanders, NY/ Bishop McGann-Mercy) helped the Mount to their 12-8 record last year. Pinchoff played No.1 singles and finished up with 9-13 record, and Rossi posted an 11-7 record in the No. 5 spot.  

Up Next: The Mount will travel to George Mason this weekend for a two day tournament. The George Mason Invitational will run Saturday through Sunday.
