Men's Tennis Announces 2013-14 Schedule
July 11, 2013
The Marquette University men’s tennis team has released its 2013-14 schedule, 11th-year head coach Steve Rodecap announced Thursday afternoon.
“We always try to put together a challenging tournament and dual match schedule and this year is no different,” head coach Steve Rodecap said. “We have basically the entire team returning and our guys are ready to embrace the high level of competition they will face all season long.”
The fall portion of the schedule is highlighted by the 38th Annual Milwaukee Tennis Classic at The Town Club in Fox Point, Wis. The eight-team event features four men’s and four women’s programs and is played on the facility’s clay courts, making it one of the most unique events in the country. The MU women’s team welcomes Wisconsin, Air Force and Ball State in 2013, while the women’s squad will host Florida International, Colorado State and Western Michigan.
Marquette will be on the road the remainder of the fall season, with stops including the Ball State Fall Invitational, Texas Invitational and several Intercollegiate Tennis Association events.
The Golden Eagles open dual play on Jan. 18 against Lipscomb before facing Vanderbilt the following day. The home opener comes Jan. 25 versus IUPUI. MU will play a total of nine home matches at Helfaer Tennis Stadium, including a four-match homestand in mid-February.
The 2013 BIG EAST Championship is slated for the final week of April in New York City and will combine both the men’s and women’s events.
