 Villanova Set for Middle States Campus Championships
5 teams from the Philadelphia Area Tennis District will be competing at the Middle States Campus Championships this weekend at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA: Villanova, UPenn, Temple, Drexel, and St. Joseph’s. All have previous championship experience with UPenn taking home the first crown in 2004 and again in 2010. Villanova won their lone Championship in 2005. 
Villanova will be sending one team to Lehigh, captained by Alexandra Balaci. Key returners from last season include Paul Mascola, Timothy Stuart, and Katherine Deily. Highlights so far from this season include adding 17 new members to their team, and playing in the Battle of the Sections held at the USTA BJK National Tennis Center in New York. 
Their team quote is “We play for those that came before us,” which is only fitting considering the strong level of play that Villanova has brought to the Championships over the past couple years.
