Chiricostas and Falcons ready for 'spring action' on the tennis court

Avon Lake’s sisters Christine and Nikki Chiricosta, and the rest of Bowling Green’s tennis team returns to action this weekend, heading to Louisville, Ky., for a pair of dual matches as the ‘spring’ portion of the season begins. The Falcons will face the University of Louisville today, and then have a match against West Virginia University on Saturday.

The Falcons had a successful fall schedule, competing in a total of four non-scored tournaments. BGSU players had a combined record of 61-24 in singles and an aggregate 28-13 doubles mark during the fall schedule.

Christine, a senior, is expected to play at the top singles and doubles flights again this spring. She went 11-2 in singles action in the fall, and teamed with sophomore Maddy Eccleston for a doubles ledger of 8-4.

Christine had a total of 20 wins in the fall, second on the team behind only her sister Nikki. Christine had 21 victories, going a team-best 12-2 in singles and posting a 9-4 doubles mark.

Following this weekend’s matches, the Falcons will return to Northwest Ohio to begin the home portion of the dual schedule. BGSU will face Cleveland State on Friday evening, Jan. 28. That match will begin at 6:00 p.m. at the Perrysburg Tennis Center.
Stay tuned for updates.
