THE SERIES
• Babson and Trinity will meet for the 10th time since 2006 on Thursday afternoon with the Bantams having won all nine of the previous matches between the programs.

LAST MEETING
• Despite taking a 2-1 lead after doubles, Babson suffered a 6-3 loss at Trinity on April 1, 2017, in Hartford, Conn.
• The Beavers picked up points at second and third doubles, and got a straight-set victory from Kylie Kam '18 at number six singles. Vanja Baunski and Julia Brogan won in both singles and doubles for the Bantams.

SCOUTING THE BANTAMS
• Trinity (1-3) has dropped two straight matches and is coming off a 5-4 loss to Cal Lutheran last Friday.
• Brogan and Elena Pellegrini were victorious at number one doubles and Pellegrini cruised to a win at number one singles to lead the Bantams.
• Pellegrini is 2-1 at number one singles, while Jillian Winer and Ashley Walker have both won two of their first three matches at fifth and sixth singles, respectively.
• Trinity has gone 2-10 as a team in doubles play through its first four matches this spring.

SCOUTING THE BEAVERS
• Babson (3-3) snapped a two-match skid by defeating Emerson, 9-0, in its conference opener on Tuesday.
• Roeper, sophomores Alexa Tutecky and Nastasia Tamarkin, and first-year Mary Kille all dropped two or fewer games in singles for the Beavers, who needed just 90 minutes to dispatch the Lions.
• Tutecky is 5-1 at number one singles, sophomore Carolina Merz is 6-2 in dual matches, Roeper and sophomore Marissa Madison are tied for the team lead with six victories in all matches.
• Merz leads the Green and White with eight doubles wins, while the duo of Tutecky and Tamarkin have gone 4-1 at number one this spring.

BUSY STRETCH FOR THE BEAVERS
• Tuesday's victory over Emerson came in the first of four matches in five days for the Beavers. In addition to facing Trinity on Thursday, the Green and White will face nationally-ranked Brandeis on Friday and travel to Springfield on Saturday.

HANDLING THEIR BUSINESS
• Excluding fall matches, Babson has gone 15-1 dating back to March of last season against unranked teams and squads ranked outside the top 25 of the ITA national poll.
• The Beavers record includes 14 straight wins since falling to Colorado College in Orlando, Fla., more than a year ago.
