Troy women's tennis to celebrate senior day

TROY, AL The Troy University women will celebrate senior day on Wednesday, facing the University of South Alabama in the final home match of the 2011 season.

In that match, TROY (8-12) will bid farewell to senior Leonie Guijt prior to the match – the lone senior on this year's team. Guijt will enter the match having won her last four singles matches and eight of her last 10 at number three singles. The senior has not lost since dropping a three-set match to Olivia Bennett of Auburn back on March 19.

Guijt will also enter the match, with her partner Karoline Grymel, as one of the hottest doubles teams in the country. The pair has won six consecutive matches, and also has won nine of their last 11 matches. Since January 29, the pair has gone 13-5, losing two consecutive matches just one time during that stretch.

As for the Trojans, they will enter the match having won their last three matches – all on the road. TROY (8-12) is facing their third consecutive conference team as the Sun Belt Conference Championships loom just a few weeks away.

While Guijt is the hottest player on the team right now, the Trojans have also gotten big wins from Grymel at number one singles. She has won three consecutive matches, and five of her last six with her only loss being a three-set loss to Claire Clarke of ULM on March 27.

Olfa Dhaoui has won three consecutive matches at number two singles, while Rosaura Ramirez-Vega has found her stride over the last week as she has won back-to-back matches for the first time this season. She ended a six-match losing streak with a victory over Ioana Teu of Arkansas State after being down a match point in the second set.

The match starts at 2:30 pm at the Lunsford Tennis Complex, with Senior Day festivities beginning approximately 20 minutes before the match.
