Cougars Travel to Western Kentucky Invitational

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE women's tennis looks to progress at the Western Kentucky Invitational after almost a month break from competition.

"This upcoming trip to Western Kentucky will be a good test for our team," Head Coach Nick Mueller said. "WKU is a solid program, and they had a very good year last year."

The Cougars found success at the SIUE Fall Invite, the only competition the team has had this season.

Lara Tupper and Morgan Steffes finished fourth in A doubles. In B doubles Callaghan Adams won the consolation final.

Steffes then went on to finish second in A singles. Ann-Christine Link won her first career singles tournament, taking home the B singles championship.  In the C singles tournament Tupper finished second while Raillane Kamdem won the consolation final.

"We have worked on a few things since we hosted the Fall Invite in early September," Mueller added. "I'm expecting to be a little sharper in those areas."

Mueller is feeling optimistic about the trip to WKU.

"With two days of strong competition approaching, I know the team is ready for a new challenge," he said. "We look forward to the trip."   

Competition begins at 3 p.m. Friday at the WKU Tennis Complex.
