SFA set to face Utah at ITA Kickoff event.
Jan. 24, 2013
NACOGDOCHES, Texas -
The No. 69-ranked Stephen F. Austin (0-1) women's tennis team will be in Austin, Texas Saturday and Sunday to compete in the Fifth Annual ITA Kickoff. The Ladyjacks will be one of 60 teams fighting for a spot in the 2013 ITA National Women's Team Indoor Championships. The Ladyjacks will open against No. 34 Utah Saturday, and will be back on the court the following day to face either No. 61 Wichita State or No. 11 Texas.
Saturday's match will be the team's first dual match competition since the season opener in Houston. The Ladyjacks dropped a 5-1 decision to the Cougars in a match that had to be moved to an off campus venue due to the weather. The only other time on the court during the spring season was at the HEB-Baylor Invite, which was an individual format.
Following their trip to Austin, the Ladyjacks will be back in action Saturday, Feb. 2, when they take their longest trip of the season. SFA will face Colorado in a 1 p.m. match. SFA will turn around less than 24 hours later to take on Northern Colorado.
