Tennis Heads To HEB Baylor Invitational

DENTON, Texas (10/29/09) - North Texas Tennis returns to Waco, Texas Friday morning for the Baylor Intercollegiate Tournament.

The last time the Mean Green visited Waco was for the Wilson/ITA Texas Regional Oct. 16-20, where North Texas claimed its biggest win in school history over Baylor's No. 8 nationally ranked doubles team.

"We have two more opportunities this fall to compete in tournaments and make improvements," head coach Sujay Lama said. "We'll have three new doubles teams to keep things fresh and also to see some new combinations. As a team, it's important for us to start putting some wins together and building a positive momentum for spring."

Teams that will be in action at the HEB Baylor Invitational include Baylor, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Rice, Texas-Arlington and Wichita State.

The Mean Green will return home to host the North Texas Classic next weekend, Nov. 6th and 7th, for their fall finale. Teams from Lamar, Texas-Arlington and Northwestern State will be competing.
