Sept. 18, 2012
Logan, Utah - Utah State's women's tennis is set to open it's fall season Wednesday, September 19, in Provo, Utah at the BYU Invitational. The matches are scheduled to start on Wednesday at 8am (MT) and conclude Saturday evening. The Aggies will be led by four returning seniors this fall season, Julie Tukuafu, Kristina Voytsekhovich, Jaci West and Mersadi Wilkins.
Also returning for Utah State are sophomores Hillary Hayes and McKenzie Davis. Davis had a very successful season last year and received second team all-WAC singles as well as second team all-WAC doubles with senior partner West. New additions to the team include freshmen, Kallie Sperry, and twin sisters Amber and Ashley Stuhlmann.
The Aggies are looking to make a comeback this season after a devastating 4-0 loss to Idaho at the final WAC tournament in April. Some players to watch include West, who completed the season last year with a record of 15-13 in singles play, and 20-6 in doubles play, and Davis who completed last year's season with a record of 20-8 in singles play.
After this weekend Utah State is set to compete in Boise, Idaho, at the Boise State Invitational on September 26-29.
