Men's Tennis Adds Saturday Home Date Versus Division I Saint Mary's
LA JOLLA, Calif. - The University of California San Diego men's tennis team's season-long nine-match homestand that keeps the Tritons in La Jolla through the month of March, is now a 10-match homestand.
UC San Diego has added a contest with Division I Saint Mary's College of Moraga in Northern California, for this Saturday, March 2, at 3 p.m. at Northview Tennis Courts on North Campus in La Jolla.
The Tritons were previously forced to cancel a home exhibition against Nevada due to weather on Jan. 18, and had a Feb. 2 road date at UC Irvine also rescheduled by rain. It is as of yet still unclear whether UC San Diego and UC Irvine will be able to find a new day and time for their intended matchup. There is actually rain in the forecast again for Saturday, so stay tuned as to whether the Saint Mary's match can even be played, here on UCSDtritons.com and on Twitter (@UCSDtritons).
The Tritons are 3-6 after Thursday's narrow 4-3 home loss to Division I Villanova. The Gaels are 1-5. Admission into all regular-season matches is free. Parking is free on weekends.
