No. 30 men’s tennis travels to Texas for HEB Tournament

97

The No. 30 BYU men’s tennis team travels to Texas this weekend to participate in the 47th annual HEB Tournament of Champions.

The Cougars’ rank is the highest since 2010 and comes after an emotional victory over rival Utah last Saturday giving the Cougars a 10–2 record.

“I think it’ll be fun to be outside again,” BYU coach Brad Pearce said. “It will be fun to play unfamiliar teams and see some unfamiliar faces.”

The eight-team tournament will take place in Corpus Christi, Texas and features BYU and No. 34 Middle Tennessee State as the top ranked teams. It will be the first time the Cougars have played on the road since their defeat at No. 18 Stanford on Feb. 1.

BYU’s is the top seed and will play its first match Friday at 9:00 a.m. CST against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. The Cougars’ second match will take place Friday evening and the third match will be Saturday afternoon. Two wins will put the Cougars in the championship match.
