SPARTANBURG, S.C. - The USC Upstate women's tennis team will look to wrap up its third year of Division I play on Tuesday afternoon by finishing alone in fourth place in the Atlantic Sun Conference instead of a three-way tie for the spot when Campbell comes into the USC Upstate Tennis Complex for a 2 p.m. match. Junior Emilia Milovanovic will also look for a personal milestone, as the Paris, France, native is just two wins away from becoming the fifth player in school history to reach 100 career combined wins. Milovanovic could become just the third player in school history to reach the mark as a junior, joining Diana Martinez '08 and Anna Novo '09 if she wins both her singles and doubles matches on Tuesday.
The match will also serve as Senior Day for the Spartans, with Upstate honoring Carolina Bello before the match. Bello was an all-conference singles player at the NAIA school Bethel College before transferring to Upstate in 2008. In two years at Upstate, Bello has won nine singles matches and 12 doubles matches while playing primarily at the top of the Spartans' singles lineup.
