The Marquette University men’s tennis team will be represented at the 2016 Saint Francis Health System ITA Men’s All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla., by senior Mackenzie Stearns and sophomore Alvaro Verdu.
Pre-qualifying matches are slated to begin on Saturday, Oct. 1, with qualifying matches starting on Oct. 3, and main draw contests getting underway on Oct. 6. The singles and doubles finals are scheduled for Oct. 10.
Both Stearns and Verdu will begin play in the pre-qualifying bracket in an attempt to earn a spot in the qualifying draw.
This marks the 12th straight year that the University of Tulsa will serve as the official tournament host, and most of the action during the two-week event will take place on the courts of the Michael D. Case Tennis Center.
Singles quarterfinalists, doubles finalists and consolation champions will receive an automatic entry into the 2016 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships on Nov. 3-6, held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York.
