LOGAN, Utah - Utah State's men's and women's tennis teams will hold a season-end banquet on Monday, April 28, at the Alumni House on the campus of Utah State University at 7 p.m. The cost is $15, and includes a catered dinner from Cafe Sabor.
Contact women's assistant coach Jaci West at 435-797-8754 to RSVP. The two teams will also be handing out season-ending team awards to the players.
"We are looking forward to getting our two programs together and celebrating the tremendous effort and hardwork this group of student-athletes has put forth this season," said women's head coach Sean McInerney.
Utah State's women's tennis team set a school record with 13 wins on the season, posting a 1-5 MW record in its first season in the league. Junior McKenzie Davis set a school record with 17 dual match singles wins this spring on her way to All-MW honors. Davis broke the previous record of 16 set by Courtney Anderson in 2005-06. The Aggies also recorded their inaugural Mountain West victory with a 5-2 win at Colorado State on April 11. Sophomore Kallie Sperry and freshmen Nini Guensler and Lexi Turley all posted a double-digit dual match win total, giving USU four players with 10+ wins in a season for the first time since 2010-11.
"The banquet will honor our seniors and to give an opportunity for people to get to know our team," said men's head coach Clancy Shields. "You can get a chance to get to know our tennis program, coaches and players. The players get to know the community and the community gets to know its players. The players get to know who they're playing for, and give the community a chance to see who's representing them."
The Aggie men finished the season with nine wins, which is the most since the 2010-11 team posted 12 victories. Two freshmen led the team in wins, as Sebastian Schneider tallied 17 total wins on the year and Dennis Baumgartner posted 14 total wins. Junior Matt Sweet recorded 12 singles victories to round out the Aggies with double-digit wins. The Aggies protected home court, as well, ending the year with a .600 winning percentage at home.
