WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- After last week's docket which featured five matches in three days, the Palm Beach Atlantic University women's tennis team returned to the court for the first time in nearly a week for action against visiting California University of Pennsylvania. Despite an aggressive showing from the Sailfish end, the #8 ranked Vulcans lived up to their standings with a 9-0 sweep over the Blue and White on Friday afternoon at Gaines Park.
The loss moves the Fish squad to 5-4 on the season as they prepare for a week-long stint at their annual spring break trip in Hilton Head, South Carolina. The women's team will open up play against Bellarmine University for a 3:30 pm match on Sunday, March 6th.
