Men’s tennis team to face Big 12, Big 10 competition

The men’s tennis team will travel to Midland Friday to compete in the Racquet Club Invitational this weekend.The Horned Frogs will be tested as they get a taste of Big 12 and Big 10 competition. Some notable teams include the Texas Longhorns, the Baylor Bears and the Illinois Fighting Illini, all of whom appear on the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s list of top 25 teams for 2006.

The team said it hopes to do better than last week where junior Cosmin Cotet led the team by getting within one spot of reaching the main draw at the Polo Ralph Lauren All-American Tennis Championships.

Following this weekend’s tournament, the Frogs will return home to host the ITA Regional from Oct. 22-24 at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center.
