COLUMBIA, S.C. — Three members of the South Carolina women’s tennis team will compete in the Princeton Invitational at the Lenz Tennis Center in Princeton, N.J., beginning Friday and ending Sunday. Katie Fosnacht, Alex Martin and Alison Mills will represent the Gamecocks as they compete against players from Princeton, Columbia, Boston College and Penn.
The event will be played in a hidden-dual format, which does not have a team score like a traditional spring dual match. Instead, it pits players from one school primarily against players from another school in a session rather than a bracketed draw as in other fall individual events. Because of the small number of players going from South Carolina, the Gamecocks will combine with Duke in competing against players from other teams in the hidden duals.
Fosnacht competed in her first tournament of the fall last week at the Furman Fall Classic. The redshirt junior registered a 2-1 record in singles in a round-robin flight and went 3-0 in doubles with Ximena Siles Luna at the event. Martin reached the singles final of flight six for a 2-1 record at Furman and she was 1-2 in doubles with Natalie Looney for a fourth-place finish in flight three. Mills took seventh place in flight six at Furman and did not compete in doubles.
Following the Princeton Invitational, South Carolina will head to Charlottesville, Va., for the UVa Fall Invitational over Oct. 10-12 at the Sheridan Snyder Tennis Center.
