NEW HAVEN, Conn. –The No. 34-ranked Yale women's tennis team (2-2, 0-0 Ivy) will look to bounce back this weekend after a second-place finish in the ECAC Indoor Championships. In their first home match of the season, the Bulldogs host Boston University Sunday at 12:00 p.m. 

Yale has had an auspicious start to spring play, despite failing to capture a fifth consecutive ECAC tournament title. The Bulldogs upset then-No. 28 Tulsa Jan. 25 at the ITA Kick-Off Weekend event in Ann Arbor, Mich. More recently, in the semifinals of the ECAC tournament, Yale defeated Ivy League foe Brown in a quick 4-0 decision. 

Playing at the top of the Bulldog ladder this season are sophomore Madeleine Hamilton and senior captain Annie Sullivan. In the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's most recent rankings, Hamilton came in at No. 97, while Sullivan trailed her at No. 102 nationally. Both Hamilton and Sullivan had crucial wins in Yale's victory over Tulsa.  

The Terriers of Boston University are 3-3 this season, with losses against Dartmouth and No. 66 Harvard. The team will face Brown in Providence on Saturday before traveling to New Haven the following day.
