Jan. 31, 2014
RALEIGH, N.C. - The No. 47 NC State women's tennis team will host its third home match of the season on Saturday, Feb. 1 as the Wolfpack welcomes the No. 70 Missouri Tigers to the J.W. Isenhour Tennis Center. First serve from the Andy Andrews Indoor Courts is set for noon.
The Wolfpack enters Saturday's match with a record of 2-0 after a pair of 7-0 season-opening victories last week over NC Central and East Carolina. State won all 18 of its combined singles and doubles matches on the day versus the Eagles and the Pirates, without dropping a set against either foe.
Joelle Kissell and Elisha Hande each finished the day with four wins while Rachael James-Baker Sophie Nelson, Nicole Martinez and Liza Fieldsend each nabbed three wins. Natalia Janowicz, Taylor Zaytoun and Christy Sipes all had one victory for the Pack.
Missouri stands at 2-2 on the season, having dropped a pair of matches to No. 66 Harvard and No. 65 Louisville in last weekend's ITA Kick-Off. The Tigers hold victories over Saint Louis and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
Saturday's match versus Missouri is U.S. Tennis Association Player Appreciation Day. T-shirts will be given to the first 100 fans in attendance, and team posters will be available in the front lobby of the J.W. Isenhour Tennis Center.
Fans are urged to park in the West Deck, which can be accessed off of Varsity Drive.
