The women’s tennis team needs to break out the record books and sharpen its pencils, because some rewriting is in the works this season. Senior Kate Weightman and junior Lauren Clary are both on pace to shatter the record for most career wins in singles competition. Entering the spring season, Weightman had 75 total wins and Clary had 70 wins. The record is 79 wins.

Both are also prolific doubles players—sometimes teaming with each other. Weightman has 65 career doubles wins and Clary 61. Both are also as strong in the classroom as on the court. Weightman has earned honors on the Atlantic 10 commissioner’s academic honor roll, while Clary—who won both A-10 performer of the year and rookie of the year awards as a freshman—was named the A-10 women’s tennis scholar-athlete of the year last season.

But the records may not last long. Clary’s sister, Kristen, is a sophomore and already has 43 wins.
