DENTON, Texas (11/5/09) – The Mean Green tennis team will finally return to the Waranch Tennis Complex to host the North Texas Classic Friday and Saturday.  The tournament will mark the first time this season that the Mean Green has had a chance to compete at home.

“We are definitely looking forward to playing at home for the first time this year,” head coach Sujay Lama said. “Our goal is to finish the fall season playing our best tennis and feeling good going into spring. We have worked extremely hard and made a lot of progress and it sure would be great to put it all together both in singles and doubles this week end.”

North Texas will continue with the doubles pairings that they debuted last week as Irina Paraschiv will team up with Amy Joubert, Madura Ranganathan will be paired with Narine Kazarova, Shannon MacKenzie will join Paula Dinuta and finally, Ashley Akin and Catalina Cruz will join forces.
