LEXINGTON, Ky. – The road trip makes one more stop for the Kentucky women’s tennis team. After opening their season with five of their first six games on the road, the Cats will head to West Lafayette, Ind., to cap off their early season road trip with a date against the No. 53 Purdue Boilermakers at the Schwartz Tennis Center.
Kentucky (0-5) is coming off a 7-0 loss at No. 19 Northwestern from Friday. Purdue (4-1) enters the match against Kentucky coming off a 6-1 loss to South Carolina from Saturday.
Kentucky has been led in singles play by senior Megan Broderick, sophomore Jessica Stiles and freshman Caitlin McGraw, who each hold 2-2 records during the spring dual season. Broderick and Stiles have teamed up to lead the Cats in No. 1 doubles.
Kentucky is 17-2 against Purdue all-time, but the two schools have not faced each other since the 2006 season, a 5-2 win for the Boilermakers. Purdue was 17-6 last season and return seven student-athletes from that team.
