Both the men’s and women’s tennis teams at the University of Utah are on the up as programs. The women are having a very successful season and the men, although they may be a couple years away from reaching the success the women have had, are stocked with young talent.
For the men, they will look to rebound Friday against Northern Arizona. After a hot 4-0 start to the season, the men have dropped two of their last three. Friday kicks off a three match home stretch in which the Utes look to get back to their early season form.
The women have been rolling after a tough start. Facing a lot of strong competition early in the season made it tough in the women’s team, but it is now paying off. After starting 0-2 at the ITA Kickoff Classic, the Utes, ranked #42 in the nation, are on a 4-0 and show no signs of slowing down. They will have a big weekend in Las Vegas as they play three matches in three days. Friday they will take on #37 ranked UNLV followed with #34 Texas Tech and #45 Long Beach State on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
