Boiling Springs, N.C. - Gardner-Webb's women's tennis team will hold its home and season opener on Monday, February 4, as the Runnin' Bulldogs take on Elon in a 2:00 p.m. match at the Webb Tennis Complex.

The Runnin' Bulldogs hit the road later in the week, traveling to face Davidson on Saturday, February 9.

GWU will look to capitalize on its excellent senior leadership, particularly early in the 2013 season, from Ronia Hutterli (Dubendorf, Switzerland) and Erica White (Charleston, W.Va.).

Sophomore Yasmin Doost (Bray, England) also returns for a Runnin' Bulldogs squad which must replace its No. 2 and No. 3 singles players this season.

With multi-All-Conference award winner and former Big South Co-Freshman of the Year Erica White figuring to hold down the No. 1 singles slot, the remainder of the lineup may be shuffled by head coach Jim Corn in the early going.

Also in the mix in singles play for the Runnin' Bulldogs will be freshmen Valeriia Popko (St. Petersburg, Russia) and Rokia Sacko (Montreal, Canada), whose success this season will be enhanced by the veteran leadership at the top of the lineup.

Monday's season opener against the visiting Phoenix is scheduled to start at 2:00 p.m. Saturday's match at Davidson is slated for a 10:00 a.m. start time.
