October 9, 1998
PULLMAN, Wash. - The Washington State women's tennis team sets up their home front for the 7th Annual Cougar Classic on Oct. 9-10.
The fall tournament will bring in women's teams from regional schools Boise State, Gonzaga, Idaho, Lewis & Clark College, Montana, Montana State, and Montana State-Billings.
Last year, the Cougars dominated the courts - capturing seven singles and three doubles titles. WSU returns the bulk of its team from the 1997-98 season, minus one graduating senior.
There are eight flighted singles draws and four flighted doubles draws. Friday's events include two rounds of singles and one round of doubles. Saturday brings two rounds of doubles and one round of singles.
The all day event will tip-off at 8:30 a.m. on Friday and 9:00 a.m. on Saturday at the Stadium Way Tennis Center.
"It is always nice to have the players play at home in the fall, since we are always on the road," WSU coach Cari Groce said. She enters her eighth year with a 90-69 school record. "This will be a good tournament for our team, the whole community, and those who will come out for the Homecoming week festivities."
