WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's tennis team will open BIG EAST Tournament play on Thursday in Tampa, Fla. The fifth-seeded Hoyas will battle the No. 12 Seton Hall University Pirates at noon, at the Varsity Courts.

It marked the second-consecutive season of success as Georgetown has now posted two of its best seasons in the past 10 years. The Hoyas finished off the year having won their last eight matches.
There were also individual accolades with junior Vicky Sekely (Mississaga, Ontario/Lorne Park Secondary School) earned BIG EAST Player of the Week honors and sophomore Tina Tehrani (New Canaan, Conn./New Canaan) being named the BG EAST Player of the Month in the fall.

Sophomore Madeline Jaeger (Laguna Beach, Calif./Laguna Beach) has also done well with an overall record of 19-9 and a mark of 12-2 at No. 5.
Tehrani has won her last nine singles matches, while Jaeger has won her last five.
In doubles play, the pair of Tehrani and Sekely is 17-3 overall going 15-2 at No. 2, while the pair of sophomore Kelly Comolli (Newburyport, Mass./Philips Exeter Academy) and Greco is 10-9 at No. 1.
