This afternoon the Boston College women’s tennis team will participate in their first NCAA Tournament since 1997. The Eagles, who had 15+ wins this season for the first time since 2003-04, will face Florida in the first round. The Eagles are led by Yufei Long and Kylie Wilcox, along with senior Jackie Urbinati. Long and Wilcox will both be returning to the team next season, which suggests that no matter the outcome of today’s game, BC is certainly trending upwards.
The Eagles are coming off of a second round loss in the ACC Tournament. After defeating Lousiville 4-1 in the first round, BC fell to Wake Forest by a score of 4-2.
If the Eagles win today, they will face the winner of Denver vs. #14 Kansas tomorrow at 2 PM.
Boston College Eagles (16-10, 5-9 Conference) vs.
