Release: 07/26/2012

LITTLE ROCK - The UALR tennis team has finalized its schedule for the upcoming 2012-13 fall and spring seasons. The Trojans will participate in three fall tournaments before playing 23 matches in the spring season, including matchups against in-state foes Arkansas State, UCA, UAPB, UA-Fort Smith and Harding.

UALR will also face off against five Sun Belt Conference opponents and will play seven of their 23 matches in Little Rock.

The Trojans kick off their fall season on Sept. 21-23 at the KU Invitational in Lawrence, Kan. UALR returns to Kansas for a second invite hosted by the Jayhawks on Oct.19-21 before concluding its fall season with the Arkansas State-hosted Red Wolves Invitational in Jonesboro, Ark., on Nov. 2-4.

UALR travels to Tulsa, Okla., for the first two matches of its spring season against Oral Roberts (Jan. 19) and Tulsa (Jan. 20). UCA comes to Burns Park for the Trojans' first home match of the season on Jan. 24. UALR then turns around and plays at UA-Fort Smith on Jan. 30 to round out its January schedule.

Home matches against Sun Belt member Troy (Feb. 2) and North Alabama (Feb. 9) begin the month of February for the Trojans. UALR then goes on a seven match road swing, beginning with Washburn (Feb. 16), Rockhurst (Feb. 17) and UMKC (Feb. 17). The Trojans play Creighton (Feb. 19) and Nebraska-Omaha (Feb. 20) before traveling to Lincoln to play the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Feb. 22. UALR ends its seven-match road trip with Wyoming on Feb. 23.

The Trojans host Louisiana Tech on March 2 and the Rebsamen Tennis Center, then travel to Pine Bluff to take on UAPB on March 8. Three-straight road matches against Sun Belt foes include ULM (March 9), Western Kentucky (March 16) and Middle Tennessee (March 17), while two more road matches at Stephen F. Austin (March 23) and Houston (March 24) round out UALR's regular season road schedule. The Trojans wrap up the regular season with three home matches against Alcorn (April 5), Harding (April 6) and Arkansas State (April 10) before playing in the Sun Belt Tournament in Lafayette, La., on April 17-21.

Last year, UALR finished with a 13-13 overall record before having its season ended by Troy in the opening round of the Sun Belt Tournament. The 13 wins were the most by a UALR team since the 2007 season.
