The Razorbacks will compete in both singles and doubles flights. Arkansas will compete at 2, 4, 6, 8 singles and 2, 4 doubles.
“We are excited to go to this exciting event,” head coach Andy Jackson said. “It’s a great opportunity for us to build on last week’s start and improve.”
In their first collegiate competition, Herndon and den Toom both advanced to the third round of the consolation bracket at the SEC Fall Classic last weekend.
The Razorbacks will open the tournament against Navy at 1 p.m. Friday.
