UTC Men's Tennis Fall Schedule Announced

Thursday, September 4, 2014

Highlighted by the UTC Steve Bara Fall Classic, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men’s tennis head coach Carlos Garcia announced the Mocs’ 2014 fall schedule today.  UTC will take part in four tournaments in the fall as it prepares for another tough Southern Conference spring schedule. 

Chattanooga opens with a trip to the Mercer Bear Gridiron Classic in Macon, Ga.  This three-day event runs Sept. 12-14 and features a number of strong regional teams.

Chattanooga then hosts the prestigious UTC Steve Baras Fall Classic at the Champions Club in Chattanooga.  This three-day tournament is Oct. 3-5 at one of the area’s top competition venues. 

Chattanooga continues a busy October with a trip to the ITA/Ohio Valley Regional on Oct. 16-19 in Nashville, Tenn.  The final event of the year is the Georgia Southern Fall Invitational on Oct. 24-26 in Statesboro, Ga.

“I think this is a very good schedule for us,” stated Coach Garcia.  “We’ve got a good mix of returners and newcomers, and this level of competition is good for both groups.”

Chattanooga returns four of its top six players who posted a 7-14 record in 2014.  Six total letter winners are back, but five new faces will push for time in the lineup.  Look for the 2015 spring schedule to be released following the conclusion of fall play.

He and Jimmy, Henry and Bill went to the University of Virginia where they were roommates in an old, beat up house that was painted pink. Naturally, the place became known as the “Pink Palace” but lest ... (click for more)

That means UConn is 153-1 and, in the current 109 streak, they have double-figure wins over the opponents ... (click for more)
