In search of their second straight Landmark Conference championship, The University of Scranton women's tennis team travels to top-seeded Moravian on Saturday for the Landmark Conference title match that will begin at 1 p.m.

The Royals, 11-6 overall on the year, advanced onto the Landmark title match for the seventh time in the last eight seasons with their win over Elizabethtown at home on Wednesday, 5-1, in the Landmark semifinals.

In the win, junior Nastashia DeNunzio (Dunmore, Pa./Dunmore) and sophomore Marissa Campo (Green Lane, Pa./Christopher Dock) won in both doubles and singles to lead the way, as Campo's win at number four singles in straight sets clinched the victory for Scranton.

With her win at number one singles, DeNunzio moved to 12-6 on the year, while Scranton's three doubles teams all were victorious in the win over Elizabethtown, as well.

Moravian, meanwhile, won their 13th straight match on Wednesday as they knocked off Goucher in their Landmark Conference semifinal match, 5-1. The win pushed the Greyhounds' record to 18-1 for the year, which is the best record ever in a season for Moravian.

In the regular season matchup between the Royals and Greyhound, Moravian clawed back from a 3-0 deficit entering singles play, capturing five of six singles matches to take a 5-4 win over Scranton at Royal Courts on April 13.
