TACARIGUA, Trinidad and Tobago  Edward Waters sophomore women’s tennis player Aalisha Alexis has earned a spot on the Trinidad and Tobago team for the 2024 Billie Jean King Cup. Alexis earned her spot on the squad without dropping a set to her opponent during her qualifying match on Sunday at the National Racquet Sports Centre in Tacarigua.
