The College of Staten Island women’s tennis team is back on the courts today, and will resume CUNYAC play with a date against Lehman College at the CSI Tennis Center at 1:00pm.

News and Notes: CSI was without two of its normal starters on Thursday in Viktoriya Volkova and Michelle Kushnir and both are expected back in the lineup.

The top seven teams make the playoffs in late October.
