Notes: The Fighting Knights are coming off a 20-5 campaign a year ago, marking the 23rd 20+ win season in program history and the fifth straight. The squad finished as runners-up at the Sunshine State Conference Tournament as well as at the NCAA South Region II Championship. Lynn qualified for the NCAA Tournament for the 22nd consecutive year, but failed to advance to nationals for just the third time in program history following a 5-4 loss to West Florida in the NCAA South Region II Championship. The squad was voted No. 2 in the SSC Preseason Poll and No. 5 in the ITA Preseason National Rankings. The Fighting Knights return three players that saw significant playing time last season, including doubles All-American Eliska Petrackova and All-SSC Singles Second Team pick Federica Mordegan. They will have to fill the roles of veteran Diana Bogolii and reigning SSC Player of the Year Klaudia Boczova, who both graduated, but have brought in two big guns this year in Leolia Jeanjean and Natalia Siedliska. Jeanjean has four years of experience playing at the Divison I level while Siedliska was the SSC Freshman and Player of the Year back in 2016 when she played at Saint Leo. The 2019 schedule is home-heavy, with 14 of the 22 scheduled matches being played at the Perper Tennis Complex.
