Women's Tennis Concludes Play at the Texas A&M Invite
COLLEGE STATION, Texas - The Utah Women's Tennis team finished their last day of play on Sunday, Oct. 23, at the Texas A&M Fall Invitational.
"Definitely had some challenging matches to end the weekend with," remarked head coach Ric Mortera. "We certainly would like to have some of those situations back. However, that is the great thing about the fall. We learn a lot about how our development plans are going and what areas we need to look at. It will be great to get home, heal up, and get ready for our next event."

Samantha Horwood was the first Ute to hit the courts. She competed against Gianna Pielet from Texas A&M and lost 6-1, 6-3.
