USU women’s tennis returns home to face Grand Canyon

‘Meara, Maggie-5

The Utah State women’s tennis team is set to return home to face Grand Canyon University Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Sports Academy and Racquet Club.

Utah State returns to Logan following a two-game Colorado road trip, the Aggies first road trip of the season. The team split its matches during the stretch, defeating Colorado College 7-0, and falling to University of Colorado 4-2.

Grand Canyon, just three games into its season, currently sits at 1-2, its most recent match coming as a 2-5 loss against Northern Arizona on Friday. While USU will have a week off before the meeting, Saturday will be the third match of the week for the Antelopes.

The Aggies enter the match boasting a 5-2 overall record this season, 4-1 in home matches. Their lone home loss of the season came two weeks ago against SEC foe Missouri.

This will be just the second meeting all-time between the two teams. The previous meeting came last season where Utah State came away victorious, defeating Grand Canyon 5-2 in Logan.

Following the match, the Aggies will hit the road for over a month before they return home to begin Mountain West Conference play at the end of March.
