DENVER- The No. 62 ranked Denver women’s tennis opens the spring season this weekend when it travels to Southern California for the Long Beach State Invitational at the Rhodes Tennis Center starting Friday.

"This weekend we will be competing against Long Beach State, The University of Portland and Cal State Northridge,” head coach Christian Thompson said. “Long Beach State is ranked No. 40 in the country, so it will be good to see where we stand against a top 50 team to start the season."  

Playing for the Pioneers at the Long Beach Invitational are senior Caroline Schnell (Greenwood Village, Colo.); junior Michelle Garpenlov (Tyreso, Sweden); sophomores Charlotte Derbyshire (Stockton, England), Kathryn Hughes (Wrexham, Wales) and Evy Van Genechten (Antwerp, Belgium); and freshmen Maureen Slattery (Newport News, Va.) and Sonja Radosevic (Miami, Fla.).

DU women’s tennis is ready to get back into play after a two-month break. The Pioneers last competed at the College of Charleston Invitational in November when they faced players from College of Charleston, Georgia and Marshall. The doubles team of Hughes-Slattery had the best doubles record for Denver winning 2-of-3 matches. Slattery also excelled in singles, posting the most wins for DU with a record of 2-1.

Each day at the Long Beach State Invitational will begin at 9 a.m. MT with doubles followed by singles play. The results from each match count towards individual records and rankings.
