Mean Green Sends Five To Lafaytte Invitational

Denton, Texas (10/1/09) – The University of North Texas tennis team will be back in action this weekend at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette Invitational in Lafayette, La.

The Mean Green looks to rebound after a disappointing start to the fall season. Catalina Cruz, Amy Joubert and Ashley Akin all tallied their first wins of the young 2009 fall season in Midland, Texas and are looking to expand on those numbers.

“Our preparation has been very good,” head coach Sujay Lama said. “We are looking forward to using this tournament as spring board for the upcoming regional. Paula, Amy and Catalina have the opportunity to play a higher flight and measure their tennis with players that will be playing in the top three of their line ups in the spring season. Playing matches that count is the fun part. We hope to have great performance in Lafayette.”

Five members of the team will take place in the individual style tournament, which is scheduled to begin on Friday morning and run through Sunday afternoon.

The Invitational marks the first chance that the Mean Green gets to see Sun Belt Conference rivals in action.
