Omaha Athletics | November 08, 2016
OMAHA, Neb. – First-year head coach Adam Summitt announced Tuesday the Omaha women’s tennis team’s 2017 season schedule, which features eight home matches for the Mavericks.

“Our team is really looking forward to the 2017 season,” Summitt said. “The schedule is well-balanced, and it will help prepare us for the challenging competition ahead in Summit League play.”

The Mavericks open the season on the road as they travel to Green Bay (Jan. 20) and Northern Iowa (Jan. 22) in the first weekend of play. They continue non-conference action with their home opener against Air Force (Jan. 27).

Omaha then embarks on a challenging 10-match road swing. In the month of February, UNO faces Iowa State (Feb. 10) and Drake (Feb. 11) in Des Moines, Iowa, Summit League opponent IUPUI and Northern Kentucky (Feb. 17) in Indianapolis, Ind., and finally in-state foe Nebraska (Feb. 26). Five more matches in March complete the away stretch with Southern Utah (March 4) and North Dakota (March 5) in Grand Forks, N.D., and stops at Kansas State (March 10), Lamar (March 21) and Prairie View A&M (March 22).

The Mavericks enjoy a three-match homestand with Colorado State (March 26), South Dakota State (April 1) and Oral Roberts (April 2) before a visit to Western Illinois (April 7). Four home matches complete the regular-season slate as Omaha welcomes Marquette (April 9), Denver (April 15), South Dakota (April 19) and Creighton (April 22).

The Summit League Tournament, hosted by IUPUI, is set for April 28-29 in Indianapolis, Ind.
