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.”
