PROVO, Utah — The BYU women’s tennis team hosts the Weber State Wildcats for its first home match of the 2013 season Saturday at noon at the Indoor Tennis Courts.

“The girls are really excited to start the season off,” head coach Lauren Jones-Spencer said. “They all have a really positive attitude entering this match.”

The Cougars have won seven of its last nine home openers. They won eight matches in 2012, their first year as a member of the West Coast Conference.

BYU is 12-0 against in-state opponent Weber State. The last time the two teams competed was in 2005 when BYU won 7-0.

Junior Desiree Tran is ranked No. 17 in the region in singles play entering Saturday’s match against the Wildcats.

Admission is free and spectators may park in the “Y Lot” parking lots to the northwest and southwest of the courts.

Aaron Sorenson is the tennis sports information director at BYU.
