No. 19 Sun Devils to Wrap Up Homestand With Loyola Marymount

TEMPE, Ariz. – The last of a five-match homestand to begin the 2023 season is up next, as the No. 19 Sun Devils will host Loyola Marymount on Saturday, January 21 (12 p.m.) at the Whiteman Tennis Center.

Live stats will be available to fans and can be found here.

The Sun Devils have aced their first four tests of the season, all of which have happened within the last week. They beat GCU and UCSD in a season-opening doubleheader on January 14, then dispatched both NMSU and NAU on January 19. All four victories have come via clean sweep.

With a win on Saturday, the Sun Devils could start the season 5-0 for the first time since 2020.


  • The Lions are led by Agustin Moreno, now in his eighth season at the helm of the program. Moreno is the reigning WCC Coach of the Year.
  • LMU was 18-4 last spring, marking the second time they’ve tallied 17-plus win seasons in Moreno’s tenure (2018).
  • The Lions returned to the NCAA Tournament last season for the first time in 20 years. They finished No. 30 in the nation in the final ITA rankings of the season, but reached as high as No. 17 earlier in the year.
  • LMU returns a number of high-caliber players, led by Veronika Miroshnichenko, who finished No. 54 in the singles rankings after advancing to the 2nd Round of the NCAA Singles Championships last spring. Miroshnichenko defeated the nation’s then fifth-ranked player Cameron Morra of University of North Carolina in the opening round of competition.
  • Wiktoria Rutkowksa was selected to WCC Honorable Mention Singles and Second Team All-Conference in Doubles with partner Isabella Tcherkes-Zade. Stefania Rogozinska-Dzik also earned WCC Honorable Mention in Singles, after posting a record of 9-1 at the No. 4 position, with a 2-0 conference record.


Next up for the Sun Devils is their first road trip of the season, in which they’ll head to Auburn, Alabama, for the annual ITA Kickoff Weekend tournament. They’re set to face Central Florida on January 28 (2 p.m. MST) and either Auburn or UCSB the following morning.
