CHATTANOOGA, TN (gomocs.com) -- University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's tennis head coach Jeff Clark announced the team's fall schedule today. The Mocs are set to play in four tournaments overall as they prepare for the 2016 spring dual season.
UTC opens on Sept. 11-13 at the Elon Invitational in Elon, N.C. The Mocs are familiar with those surroundings as the Phoenix were longtime members of the Southern Conference until 2014.
Chattanooga is home on Oct. 2-3, hosting the prestigious UTC Steve Baras Fall Classic. This tournament includes both men's and women's teams and takes place at the Champions Club. Action is condensed this year, as the Baras moves from a three-day tournament to a two-day event.
The ITA Ohio Valley Regional is Oct. 16-19 at Purdue. The Mocs close out the fall at Alabama's Roberta Alison Invitational in Tuscaloosa on Oct. 30-Nov. 1.
"We have a very challenging fall schedule," stated Clark. The Elon Tournament is a strong field and we always look forward to hosting the Baras. It has grown into one of the top tournaments in the Southeast over the last decade. There is also a lot of tough competition at the ITA Regionals and Alabama's tournament."
