James Wins Twice as Women’s Tennis Plays First Home Match of Spring on Thursday

PHILADELPHIA – The University of the Sciences women's tennis team dropped its first home match of the spring 5-2 to Millersville on Thursday evening at the Hamlin Center.

Notably, the result moved Mazurek to .500 in doubles play at 9-9 on the year. 

James then won in straight sets at No. 5 singles, which moved her into a tie for third on the team with six victories this year.  

Danielle Paran was USciences' other winner, defeating her fourth flight opponent in straight sets 

The doubles point came down to the second flight, a slim 4-6 defeat for Abbygail Gamarnik and Elkanah Linder
