The Providence College tennis team hosted the University of Cincinnati on Thursday, March 26 in Providence, R.I. The Friars dropped their second straight match, being swept by the Bearcats, 7-0.
Senior Ashley Rissolo (Southport, Conn.) played strong for PC, falling in the No. 2 singles position, 6-4, 6-1, to Cincinnati's Jennifer Rowen. She then teamed up with freshman Melanie Albert (Sanibel, Fla.) in the Friars' closest doubles match of the day, an 8-3 defeat in the No. 2 spot.
The Friars return to action on Saturday, March 28 when they host Seton Hall in Providence, R.I. The match was originally set for an 11:00 a.m. start but has been moved up to 10:00 a.m. due to concerns over rain in the afternoon.
