Women’s tennis goes 2–1 at ITA Indoors as Shvets pulls off massive upset

The women's tennis team went 2–1 at the ITA Indoor Nationals in Chicago this weekend. They were defeated by No. 7 NC State but went on to win all their matches against Arizona State and No. 6 Pepperdine. The Tigers went into the weekend ranked No. 17, but they will likely rise in next week's polls due to the win over Pepperdine. The highlight of the weekend was when Princeton sophomore singles player Brianna Shvets, ranked 34th in the nation, upset Ashley Lahey, the nation's top player, in straight sets.
