SAN ANTONIO – The UTSA men's tennis team will return to the court this weekend when it takes to the road and heads north to face a pair of Dallas-area opponents.
The Roadrunners (1-3) will face UT Arlington (2-2) on Saturday with action starting at 12 p.m. at the UTA Tennis Center and will then face SMU (5-3) on Sunday morning with action beginning at 9 a.m. at the Styslinger / Altec Tennis Complex.
UTSA hosted a pair of schools, New Orleans and UC Santa Barbara, this past weekend as a part of its home-opening weekend. The Roadrunners picked up their first win of the season on Friday, Feb. 3, when it bested New Orleans, 5-2. UTSA was back in action on Sunday, facing an undefeated UC Santa Barbara squad. The Roadrunners fell to UCSB, 2-5, as the Gauchos rallied from dropping the doubles point to winning five of the six singles matches.
UTSA's doubles pair of Sebastian Rodriguez and Alan Magadan remain in the top ten of the ITA national rankings as the duo was recently announced as the eighth-best tandem in the country following the Feb. 8 update.
