PROVO -- The BYU women’s tennis team will kick off its fall season this weekend hosting the BYU Invitational. The collegiate tournament will pit the Cougars against opponents from Utah, Boise State, Utah State, Weber State, Colorado State and Air Force.

All of BYU’s returning players will participate in the tournament including juniors Kristina Doerr, Chie Hayaska and Jocelyn Jensen and sophomores Liza Ezhova and Elle Carney. Also representing the Cougars will be freshmen McCall Jones and Romina Nedakovic.

“This tournament is about the status quo,” head coach Craig Manning said. “Hopefully, we’ll do well and we’ll win, but we just want to see where we’re at.”

The tournament will run Thursday through Saturday at the BYU outdoor tennis courts. Matches will begin at 10 a.m. each day and are open to the public. The outdoor courts are located south of the Smith Fieldhouse with an entrance on the east side.

BYU Y parking lots are open to the public after 4 p.m. on Thursday and Saturday. All BYU lots are available on Saturday.
