EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE women's tennis begins a three-match road trip this weekend with its first outdoor action of the spring season.
SIUE begins the trip Friday with a 2 p.m. match at Southern Mississippi. The Cougars continue on to New Orleans, La., to play Loyola (New Orleans) Saturday at 11 a.m. followed by New Orleans Sunday at 2 p.m.
"This is a good opportunity to go down and get three matches to kick off our outdoor season," said SIUE Head Coach Jason Coomer.
The Cougars started the spring season with a 4-3 record with all of its competition having been played indoors.
"We'll definitely have to come in prepared to play and adjust to the conditions quickly," said Coomer.
This will be SIUE's final nonconference action of the season as it prepares for the Ohio Valley Conference portion of the schedule.
"We're going to go out and play how we know to play," said Coomer. "Whether we are inside or outside, our composure and approach to the game should not be any different."
