Cougars Set for Home Dual Match Opener

Lexi Aranda

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE women's tennis will face Evansville Saturday in the spring season home opener.


The first serve is set for 4:30 p.m. at the Edwardsville YMCA.


This is the second time SIUE has faced off against the Evansville Purple Aces. The Aces were one of the teams that competed in the SIUE Fall Invitational last September.  Evansville was 9-6 in singles matches at the tournament but 2-3 against the Cougars.


SIUE features a young lineup with no seniors on the roster.


The freshman class for SIUE Head Coach Jason Coomer has made an impact. Lexi Aranda and Mia Frogner have combined for a 23-4 record in singles play overall. Aranda holds a three-match winning streak while Frogner has won her last six contests.
