Box score

EDWARDSVILLE, Pa. – The University of Scranton women’s tennis team opened its season with an 8-1 defeat at Wilkes University on Friday evening at the Ralston Athletic Complex.

Junior Megan Azzalina (Easton, Pa./Notre Dame) posted the lone victory for the Royals at No. 2 singles, winning a three-set marathon, 3-6, 6-0, 11-9 over Colonels freshman Kendra Croker (Old Forge, Pa./Scranton Preparatory).

The loss came in the Scranton head coaching debut of Janice Winslow, who took over the program this summer. She joined Scranton with 199 career coaching victories after a highly successful run as the head coach at Marywood University from 1986 to 2007.

Wilkes, which has won seven straight Freedom Conference championships, improved to 5-0 with the victory.

Scranton will try to give Winslow her 200th career victory on Saturday when the Royals host Lebanon Valley at 11 a.m. at Royal Courts at DeNaples Fields.
