Cameron McDonough of the Massachusetts Daily Collegian has a recap in Tuesday's edition of the UMass tennis team's stellar weekend at the Eastern Collegiate Invitational at Army. Against some of the top programs in the Northeast, UMass placed five of its eight players in the semfinal round of flights and had two flight champions, Jessica Podlofsky and Chanel Glasper, who is 7-1 in her freshman campaign.
Podlofsky is now a perfect 8-0 on the season and was named UMass Athlete of the Week. She will be honored, along with Head Coach Judy Dixon, at Wednesday's UMass Sports Luncheon, at noon at the Cape Cod Room of the Student Union.
"I was very pleased with the effort from everyone on the team," said UMass coach Judy Dixon. "I have felt like the last two weeks have been very positive and what coaches need this time of year is to take a look at their players and see what we need to work on," she said.
