The Winthrop University Eagles will be looking to bounce back from a 9-13 season a year ago and will be looking to do so with a young roster as they only have two seniors that will be competing.

Last year, the team enjoyed playing on their home courts, evidenced by their 7-2 record. They struggled on the road, only winning two games, but they will surely put a lot of emphasis on preparing and playing on the road this year.

The Eagles’ Women’s Tennis team will look to improve from last year’s impressive campaign. The team posted an 18-10 record, including a perfect 9-0 in conference play. This was their highest win total since the 2010-11 season, when they posted a 19-10 overall record.

They were able to continue their strong regular season play into the conference championship, where they managed to sweep every match and were crowned Big South Champions.
