UTC Tennis Team Travels To Alabama, Austin Peay

Thursday, February 1, 2018
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's tennis team has a pair of away matches this weekend.  The Mocs travels to Alabama on Saturday and Austin Peay on Sunday in non-conference action. 

UTC is in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Feb. 3, for an 11:00 a.m. (E.S.T.) dual.  A link for live scoring for this match is available on the women's tennis schedule page on GoMocs.com.  First serve for the match in Clarksville, Tenn., is set for 3:00 p.m. on Feb. 4.  

"We are excited about playing our first SEC opponent Saturday," stated head coach Chad Camper.  "As a program, we are always trying to learn and push to be better, so Saturday will be a good test.

"The APSU will feel much like a conference match.
They are always improving and have some of the best players in the Southern region. We look forward to coming out of this weekend's matches better experienced."

The Crimson Tide is receiving votes in this week's Oracle/ITA Division I Women's Rankings and enters the match with a 7-0 mark.  Alabama swept both Lipscomb (6-0) and Belmont (7-0), two teams the Mocs also defeated this spring.

The Mocs are 6-7 all-time against Alabama, but have lost six in a row in the series.  This is the first match between these two teams since 2011, and the last UTC win was in 1985. 

Austin Peay is 0-1, dropping their only match of the season to MTSU (5-2) on Jan. 14.  UTC holds an 18-2 advantage in the series, including five wins in a row.  UTC has faced the Governors each of the last five years, including a 6-1 win in Chattanooga on Jan. 16, 2017.

As Commissioner Tim Boyd correctly stated, there is immediate and emergent need for police and fire training facilities. ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Lamar Rants

Being a child of the South, I’ve marveled at our funny sayings for all of my life.
