Correction appended

This post was written by Hatchet reporter Nora Princiotti.

The seeds have been set for the 2013 A-10 women’s tennis championship, and the Colonials are ranked sixth overall.

They will play the 11 seed, Saint Joseph’s University in the first round Thursday at 6 p.m. GW faced SJU on Feb. 16th and came away with a 6-1 victory over the Rams.

A-10 newcomer VCU earned the No. 1 seed, followed by Xavier, Massachusetts, reigning champion Richmond, Charlotte, George Washington, Fordham, Saint Louis, Temple, Duquesne, Saint Joseph’s, Rhode Island,  Butler, Dayton, St. Bonaventure, and La Salle.

Quarterfinal matches take place Friday and semifinals follow on Saturday. The finals are scheduled for Sunday at 10 a.m.

The A-10 championship operates as a four-day, single-elimination format. The winner receives the conference’s automatic bid to play in the NCAA tournament.

The Colonials closed out their regular season 10-7, with a 4-1 record in-conference.
