“Our regional tournament always offers great competition and Stanford is a great place to play,” the head coach said. Dustin Hinson said. “We have been training hard over the past two weeks to build on what we started in our first home tournament. We will enjoy playing tough players from our region. Hopefully we can grow on the pitch and as a team throughout the weekend.”
The Eagles have six players competing, as Isabelle Foshee, Léandra Nizetic, Kenzington Mann, Sara Vasic, taylor andersen and Renata Gabouyan will all be among the field. The six Eagles will face off in the singles and doubles main draw.
