Women’s Tennis | May 08, 2024

The No. 11 USC women’s tennis team continues their pursuit of a national title with a short trip to Malibu for the NCAA Round of 16. USC will face off against No. 5 [6] Pepperdine on Friday (May 10) at 1 p.m. PT at the Ralph Strauss Tennis Center. 

This will be the Trojans third encounter with the Waves this season. USC first faced Pepperdine at the ITA National Team Indoor Championships, falling 4-2 to the then-No. 6 ranked Waves. The Women of Troy later fell 4-0 to the No. 3 ranked Waves on March 23 in Malibu. USC looks to avenge both loses this Friday and snap a 14-match losing streak to the Waves. 

The eight teams that advance out of the Super Regional will head to Stillwater, Oklahoma for the quarterfinals through national championship. Matches will be played at the Greenwood Tennis Center May 17-19, with the singles and doubles finals to take place thereafter from May 20-25.
