Just one week after what UMass coach Judy Dixon called a, "successful weekend," in the Harvard Fall Classic, her squad is trying to repeat its formula when the Eastern Collegiate Invitational begins in West Point, NY. on Friday.
The tournament is a popular one early in the season, and serves as another tune-up for not only the Minutewomen, but also other Atlantic 10 foes the team will face later in the season. Other A-10 teams attending the Invitational include Rhode Island and Fordham.
The UMass tennis team played its first home match of the spring semester on Sunday, defeating NJIT in dominating fashion, 6-1. The Minutewomen won two out of three doubles matches to take the doubles point before winning five out of the six singles matches.

The Minutewomen were supposed to open the season on Thursday afternoon vs. Holy Cross, but weather forced a postponement of that match. The make-up date has yet to be set.
The Minutewomen open their home season on Thursday against Holy Cross (1:30 p.m.) and then Friday they host Fordham (noon). Both matches are at the Mullins Courts.
