MILWAUKEE-- The Marquette University women’s tennis team will compete in Tucson, Ariz. Oct. 2-4 in the University of Arizona Invitational. The University of Arizona will celebrate its third annual year of the invite, and Marquette its second appearance in it.
The event will be the team’s third weekend playing in a row, and second on the road, following last weekend’s play at the Hoosier Classic. Freshman Silvia Ambrosio and senior Erin Gebes both fell in the singles finals of Flight 1 against Western Michigan.
Eight teams will be represented in Tucson, including Arizona, UTEP, Utah State, Tulane, New Mexico, UTSA, Northern Arizona, and Marquette. MU will show as the only BIG EAST and Midwest-based team in the tournament.
Play will take place at El Conquistador in the heart of Tucson. The play is set up in many brackets of singles and doubles action beginning at 9 a.m. Mountain Standard time each day. Brackets will be released later in the week.
