2011 Women’s Tennis Schedule Set

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The spring schedule for Arkansas’ women’s tennis team includes 11 dual matches at home with the Razorbacks looking for their fourth straight trip to the NCAA Tournament.

Arkansas has non-conference home matches against North Texas, Texas A&M, Tulsa, Texas Tech, Colorado and Rice. The Razorbacks have home Southeastern Conference matches against South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Vanderbilt and LSU.

Head coach Michael Hegarty’s club begins the season Jan. 15-17 at the Virginia Quad.

After home matches against North Texas and Texas A&M, the Razorbacks participate in the ITA Kickoff tournament at Notre Dame, facing Utah in the first round and either Notre Dame or Yale in the second round.

“This year’s schedule really sets up well for our team,” Hegarty says. “We have our best non-conference home schedule in years, and some great early road tests. The ITA Kickoff event up at Notre Dame will be a highlight and of course the SEC schedule speaks for itself. As many as eight teams will begin the spring in the national top 25.”

After matches on the road against Oklahoma State and Oklahoma, the Razorbacks are home for consecutive dates against Tulsa, Texas Tech, Colorado, Rice, South Carolina and Florida.

SEC road matches follow at Mississippi State and Ole Miss. After a home match against Tennessee, the Razorbacks are back on the road at Georgia, Alabama and Auburn.

Arkansas closes the year at home against Kentucky, Vanderbilt and LSU.

The SEC Championship is in Knoxville.
