SIUE Tennis Opens Season at Home Friday

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill.— The SIUE women's tennis will open up their season Friday with the SIUE Invite starting at 10 a.m.

"I am excited to get this team on the courts and compete at a high level," commented SIUE Head Coach Adam Albertsen. "With this being our first event of the fall season, we will use it as a learning experience to identify what we do well and where we need to improve."

The Cougars have added four new student-athletes to their roster that will make an immediate impact.

"The new additions have complemented our returners well and have added depth to the team," stated Albertsen. "I am excited to see how this new group responds to their first competition as Cougars."

The SIUE invite is set to begin on Friday at 10 a.m. and Saturday at 8 a.m. Teams that will participate in the invite include Saint Louis, Western Illinois and Eastern Illinois.

"We have had a high level of energy so far in training and I really look forward to seeing that transition in our match," added Albertsen
