July 26, 2013
LOgan, Utah - Utah State women's tennis coach Sean McInerney announced Friday the 2013-14 fall and spring schedules.
The Aggies open the fall portion of the schedule with three tournaments, beginning with the BYU Invitational in Provo, Utah, Sept. 19-21. Utah State will compete the next week in Boise, Idaho at the Boise State Invitational from Sept. 27-29. The Aggie women will conclude the fall season at the ITA Regionals in Las Vegas, Nev., Oct. 9-13.
"We have a very balanced and challenging schedule this season. We are very excited for the opportunity to compete in the very tough Mountain West. We have a very young team, and I am looking forward to watching this program throughout the year and become the best team we can be," McInerney said.
USU has a very intense spring schedule with four-straight road dual matches, beginning with a trio of matches in Chicago. The Aggies will take on Chicago State, South Dakota and Valparaiso in the Windy City. USU concludes the road trip against border-rival Idaho State on Feb. 6 at Pocatello, Idaho.
The Aggies will play the first of six home matches on Tuesday, Feb. 11, hosting Weber State at the USU Indoor Courts at the Sports Academy at Racquet Club. USU will then play the next 10 matches away from home, including opening its first season in the Mountain West against UNLV on March 2.
From March 27-April 3, the Aggies will host Montana State, Montana and MW opponents, Air Force and New Mexico. USU will compete in its first MW Tournament in a familiar locale as Fresno State will play host, April 23-26.
McInerney is in his first season at USU after spending the past four years as the head women's tennis coach at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee earning Horizon League Coach of the Year honors the past two seasons as he led the Panthers to back-to-back third-place conference finishes and its best two-year league win total in school history with 10 victories.
Utah State completed its final season in the Western Athletic Conference in April with a 5-2 loss to Idaho in the WAC Tournament held in Denver, Colo.
