ITA Kick-Off Weekend opens at Dills Tennis Center

ITA Kick-Off Weekend will begin at the Dills Indoor Tennis Center today, hosted by the 14th-ranked University of Arkansas women's tennis team.

"Hosting this weekend's event is obviously a big thrill for our players and staff," said Arkansas head coach Michael Hegarty. "Advancing through the weekend to the Sweet Sixteen in Wisconsin is of course every team's goal."

Along with the Razorbacks (2-0), No. 17 Notre Dame, No. 44 Pepperdine and 58thranked Oregon will all be competing in the event today and Sunday.

The Hogs will play the Ducks at approximately 2 p.m. following the 10 a.m. match between the Irish and Waves.

Arkansas will enjoy homecourt advantage in hopes to qualify for the ITA Team Indoor Championships in Madison, Wisc., for the second-consecutive year. The tournament is a four-team bracket with today's winners facing off Sunday at 2 p.m. for the right to advance to the top 16. The Hogs are coming off a weekend sweep against St. Louis and No. 34 Tulsa.
