OXFORD, Ohio – The Miami University tennis team will host the Miami Invitational this weekend. In addition to Miami, players from Bowling Green, Xavier and Louisville will compete against each other in the tournament. Action kicks off Saturday morning at 9 a.m. and continues through Sunday. 

“The expectation is always that we will go out and compete well,” said Head Coach Anca Dumitrescu. “We need to take care of the things we can control and play hard. It will be a great experience hosting these schools and our players just need to go out and compete for points against them.”

Miami enters the weekend coming off a strong showing at the Ball State Invitational. Senior Christiana Raymond, freshman Andreea Badileanu, junior Christine Guerazzi and freshman Chloe Heerden won their singles flights in the team’s first tournament of the season. Guerazzi won her singles final by defeating her teammate, junior Ramona Costea.
