JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (October 30, 2008) - After another strong showing at the ITA Regional Championships last weekend, the ETSU women's tennis team looks to continue to build on its success as they swing into action Thursday at the Hokie Fall Invitational, in Blacksburg, Va.

 

A total of 82 players, representing 13 teams will make up a strong field at the three-day event.

 

Friday's action will begin with two rounds of doubles followed by a single round of singles. Saturday's action opens with one round of doubles and two rounds of singles. Finals in all but the Flight C doubles will take place on Sunday and the Flight C doubles are set to conclude on Saturday.
