HOUSTON – The University of Houston Tennis program and Head Coach Helena Besovic unveiled the Cougars’ 2023 spring match schedule on Wednesday.
“We’ve had a great fall and have seen improvements from everyone with each tournament,” Besovic said. “The team is in good spirits, focusing on finishing their classes and looking forward to the spring competition.”
The 21-match schedule includes 10 home matches at the Barbara Wallace Winston Tennis Facility, as well as 11 away and neutral matches. The Cougars look to continue success at home after posting a 10-0 record during the 2022 spring season.
Houston will open the season on Jan. 17 against Texas A&M in College Station, Texas, and then will face soon-to-be Big 12 Conference opponent Baylor in Waco, Texas, on Jan. 21 and UTRGV on Jan. 22.
The Cougars open their home slate at the Wallace Winston Tennis Facility with a five match homestand beginning Jan. 27 against Elon, followed by matches against Texas State, Louisiana-Monroe and a doubleheader against Prairie View A&M.
From there, Houston will take head out for a seven-match road trip where it will face Louisiana Tech, Stephen F. Austin, Nicholls, Louisiana, Tulane, Southern Louisiana and Memphis.
The Cougars will return for a four-match homestand beginning March 19. Houston will host Portland, FIU, North Texas and South Florida.
Following their last road match against UTSA on April 4, the Cougars will close out the regular season on April 15 against Rice at the Barbara Wallace Winston Tennis Facility.
Houston will then set sights on its final American Athletic Conference Championship Tournament taking place April 19-22 at the USTA National Campus in Orlando, Fla.
