Women’s Tennis Hosts Under Armour/HEB Kickoff

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Four members of the Baylor women’s tennis team will represent the Lady Bears in the Under Armour/HEB Kickoff at Hurd Tennis Center this weekend. Baylor welcomes competitors from Louisiana Monroe, Georgia State, Mississippi State, Troy, and Wisconsin for 32-person singles and 16-team doubles action on Oct. 7-9.

“We are looking forward to competing and continuing to learn at home,” head coach Joey Scrivano said. “Our players definitely have been working hard and improving on the court. We believe that they have learned a lot since the wildcard event, and we are excited to see what they’ve learned in action this weekend.”

Junior Theresa Van Zyl, sophomores Karina Traxler and Elizabeth Profit, and freshman Jessica Hinojosa will compete individually in the singles bracket. Pairing up for doubles action are Van Zyl and Profit and Hinojosa and Traxler.

Action begins with a doubles match at noon (CT) on Friday and continues with two singles matches. A session of Baylor Cub Tennis follows at 5 p.m. for children under the age of 11. To participate in the free clinic, children must wear athletic wear and tennis shoes. Tennis equipment will be provided.
