Aggie Men's Tennis To Open Fall Season at Weber State Thursday
Sept. 19, 2012
Logan, Utah - USU men's tennis is set to open their Fall season by competing this weekend in the Weber State Invitational in Ogden Utah. The action is set to start Thursday, Sept. 20, and end on Saturday. The Aggies' roster includes seven returning players including senior Sven Poslusny, who last season received second-team all-WAC singles honors.
Also returning for the Aggies are juniors Brandon Nielson, Fredrick Peterson and Andrew Whiting. The team includes two additions, junior Matt Thatcher, from Logan Utah, and freshman Zeno Kastelic, from St. George Utah.
In their last match of the regular season last year Utah State lost to Nevada 5-2 leaving it's record 5-13 with 0-4 in Western Athletic Conference play. After a 4-0 loss to Hawai'i in the WAC tournament in April, the Aggies are looking to bounce back this year. People to watch include Poslusny, who finished last season with a singles record of 11-13 and a doubles record of 9-15.
The Aggies are next set to compete in at the Utah Invitational in Salt Lake City on October 11-15.
