While much of the attention on campus last week was focused on football’s National Signing Day, the USC women’s tennis team quietly managed to recruit its own decorated class, regarded by multiple scouting services as No. 1 in the nation.
With the future addressed, the coaching staff can now focus all its efforts on the present.
No. 19 USC (3-1) returns to the outdoor environs of Marks Stadium for a slate of games this week, beginning today with a match against San Diego State (3-1) at 1:30 p.m.
The team suffered its first loss of the season to Michigan last month in a tight affair in which a few unforced errors proved costly, forcing a 5-2 loss.
“We have six matches until UCLA, so we’re trying to build up a winning streak before that game,” said junior Alison Ramos. “Getting a win tomorrow is huge because we really need the confidence after the tough loss to Michigan.”
