Utah State Men's Tennis Announces Spring Schedule
2018 Home Spring Schedule
Nov. 21, 2017

LOGAN, Utah - Utah State men's tennis has released its 2018 spring schedule, as announced Tuesday by head coach James Wilson. The Aggies will host eight home matches, and the schedule includes seven opponents who finished the 2017 season ranked by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA).

"The schedule is very challenging, but I feel it is necessary if we want to continue to build upon the success of last season. We will have opportunities throughout to play against some of the nation's elite teams and some of our regional rivals. I feel that our squad will relish those opportunities and make the most of them," Wilson said. "Last year, we did a great job of playing with a chip on our shoulder. This year is different, but I feel that this young group will want to prove it belongs amongst the nation's top teams. Our non-conference schedule is definitely tough, however, it will prepare us for Mountain West play, which will be very difficult, as well."

USU opens its season hosting Southern Utah and Idaho State in a doubleheader on Jan. 13, at 10 a.m., and 2 p.m., respectively. The Aggie netters then travel to Salt Lake City to face Utah on Jan. 21, at noon. USU heads to Los Angeles, Calif., for the ITA Kick-Off Weekend to compete against Central Florida on Jan. 27, at 9:30 a.m. (MT). Utah State will compete the following day against UCLA, which finished the 2017 season ranked No. 5 by the ITA, or UC Davis, depending on results from day one.

Utah State travels to San Antonio, Texas, to face UTSA on Feb. 11, at 10 a.m. On Feb. 16, the netters will head to Provo, Utah, to compete against BYU at 5 p.m. The Aggies then host another doubleheader on Feb. 18, facing UC Irvine and Montana State at 10 a.m., and 2 p.m., respectively.
