The USC Upstate women’s tennis team continues a four-match road trip this weekend when the Spartans travel to UNC Wilmington Friday at 1:30 p.m. and Coastal Carolina Saturday at 12 p.m.

Upstate opened its spring season Jan. 21 with a road loss to Furman. Despite the setback, the Upstate duo of Isabel von Stryk and Anna Zoske began the year 1-0 in doubles play with a 6-0 shutout from the No. 1 position.

UNC Wilmington started its spring schedule Jan. 17 with a 7-0 home win over Norfolk State. The Seahawks are coming off a 2014 season in which they posted a 17-4 record and went on to capture the Colonial Athletic Association championship.

Coastal Carolina fell to 0-1 following a Jan. 25 4-3 loss at UNC Greensboro despite rallying from three points down. The Chanticleers finished last season with an 18-7 overall record and reached the semifinals of the Big South Tournament.
