Hogs travel for final non-conference weekend

LAS VEGAS, Nev. — After opening the season with six straight dual matches at home, the No. 58—ranked Razorbacks will head to Las Vegas this weekend to take on No. 31 Fresno State and UNLV.

The Hogs (3-3) match up first against Fresno State on Saturday at 1 p.m. The Bulldogs are ranked No. 31 with a record of 4-4. Fresno State’s highest ranking of the year was 28, and the Bulldogs have consistently stayed in the top 30. Fresno also has two ranked singles players in the top 100, and a doubles pair ranked No. 29.

On Sunday at 10 a.m. the Razorbacks will meet the UNLV Rebels for the second time this season. The Hogs played the Rebels back in January in their first dual match of the season. The Hogs fell, 5-2, but have since won three matches and are prepared to meet them again. UNLV was ranked it’s highest at 66, but has since fallen out of the rankings completely.

The Razorbacks have steadily climbed in the rankings and are currently at their highest of the year at No. 58. Doubles pairs Nikolas Zogaj/Mike Ward and Gregoire Lehmann/Chris Nott both lost their first matches of the season this past weekend. The loss snapped a tenmatch winning streak for Ward and Zogaj. The Hogs will begin conference play next weekend against South Carolina and Florida.
