Mountaineer tennis duo writes program history

MORGANTOWN, W.Va.— For the first time in the program’s history, the pairing of freshman Camilla Bossi and junior Ting-Pei Chang of the West Virginia University tennis team debuted at No. 42 on the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) doubles rankings, it was announced Wednesday.

Bossi and Chang enter the rankings after defeating then-No. 5 pair Mel Krywoj and Alicia Herrero, 6-4, of then-No. 26 Baylor on March 20th. The pair currently lead the team with an 8-2 record this spring. Notably, their only losses come from two ranked opponents, including No. 41 Iuliia Bryzgalova and Marija Curnic of Penn on March 5 and No. 50 Kylie Collins and Charlotte Chavatipon of Texas on March 18.

“Camilla and Pei are helping set up this program and are breaking glass ceilings for our team this week,” said Mountaineer coach Miha Lisac. “This is a first program for us and we are all very excited about the fruits of their labor. They’ve put in a lot of work this year and we can’t see where they’re going from here.

Next, the Mountaineers travel to Texas for two doubles games March 25-27. The road swing begins in Fort Worth as WVU will play TCU on Friday, March 25. First serve is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. ET at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center. After beating the Horned Frogs, West Virginia ends its weekend at the Lone Star State with a matchup against No. 34 Texas Tech on Sunday March 27 in Lubbock. The first serve against the Red Raiders is scheduled for 12 p.m. at the McLeod Tennis Center in Lubbock
