PROVO, Utah – The BYU women’s tennis team travels to Las Vegas to compete in the 2012 ITA Mountain Regional tournament on Oct. 10-14 at the Fertitta Tennis Complex on UNLV’s campus.
“This is going to be a good week of tennis for us,” head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “We have been practicing well and the girls all seem ready to compete.”
The tournament features 19 other schools, including three local schools in Utah, Utah State and Weber State.
