It should come as no surprise to those who followed her tennis career at Valley that Courtney Brennan is continuing her strong play at Washington & Jefferson College.

Now a sophomore, Brennan opened the season with a No. 1 singles victory, and also teamed with Grace McCarthy for a doubles win, as the Presidents downed Pitt-Greensburg.

Brennan is 9-4 in both singles and doubles in her college career.
