WEST HARTFORD, Conn. - Just as the University of Saint Joseph and Regis College tennis teams were getting ready to begin its match on Thursday afternoon, a rain stormed rolled into West Hartford and soaked the courts, forcing the Blue Jays and Pride to cancel the match.
The rain-shortened day cancelled Senior Day for USJ's lone senior Rebecca Mauri (Meriden, CT/Platt), but the Blue Jays were able to celebrate and honor Mauri as a team prior to the storm. A complete photo album can be found below.
The USJ tennis team will now return to action next with its final regular season match of the 2016 season on Saturday, Oct. 15 at Albertus Magnus at 1 p.m. The match is crucial in deciding home court advantage in the upcoming GNAC Championship Tournament. Both teams are currently tied for fourth place in the GNAC standings and the winner of Saturday's match will host the other in the opening round on Wednesday, Oct. 19.
