We’re going to play our best and we’re going to see what happens. We’ve been working hard all season.



Beacons Earn Program Record Four Conference Wins

UMass Boston’s women’s tennis team travels to No. 4 UMass Dartmouth Tuesday afternoon for their first match of the 2015 Little East Conference Tournament.

The No. 5 Beacons are in the playoffs for the second time in three years thanks to a program record four conference wins this year. And they’ll be facing a familiar foe. The Beacons fell to the Corsairs in their last playoff appearance, in 2013.

Junior Kelsey Shea, a criminal justice and psychology major from West Bridgewater, leads the Beacons with 7 singles wins and 13 overall victories.

“We’re going to play our best and we’re going to see what happens. We’ve been working hard all season,” Shea said.

 

The winner of Tuesday’s match will travel to No. 1 Rhode Island College for a match on Thursday afternoon.
