MIT Women’s Tennis Opens Season Sept. 10

Cambridge, Mass. – MIT's women's tennis team will begin its 2011-12 season on September 10 when it travels to Smith College for a match that will also begin NEWMAC Conference play for the Engineers, who finished the 2010-11 season ranked No. 22 in Division III. It will begin a fall season for MIT that includes a full slate of NEWMAC matches as well as the Conference Championships in October.

Including the Smith College match, MIT opens the season with four of its first five contests coming against conference opponents. After the opener, MIT debuts at home against conference foe Clark University on September 17. The Engineers continue at home on September 22 when they host Tufts University, one of three teams on the 2011-12 schedule that were NCAA Tournament participants last season.

MIT's fall season also includes play at the ITA New England Regional Championships that will be hosted by Bates College from September 30-October 2. The Engineers return to NEWMAC play with three straight matches, two at home against Wellesley College and Springfield College, before taking part in the New England Women's Intercollegiate Tennis Tournament at Amherst College. MIT will close out the fall portion of its schedule with the NEWMAC Championships that start October 19.

Spring begins for the Engineers in March with home matches against New York University and Colby College. MIT will play three more matches at home in April, hosting Simmons College, Brandies University and Trinity College. The match against Trinity on April 28 will close out the regular season for the Engineers.
