MEN'S TENNIS SET TO PLAY ST. LOUIS UNIVERSITY IN NEUTRAL SITE MATCH

The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi men's tennis team will take on St. Louis in a neutral-site match on Tuesday in San Antonio.

The Islanders are now 4-8 on the season after a 0-3 weekend at the HEB Tournament of Champions this past weekend and look to bounce back against the Billikens in a 12 PM match.

TAMUCC lost three tough matches last weekend, a 4-3 loss to DePaul, a 4-2 loss to Middle Tennessee and a 4-3 loss to Louisiana-Lafayette in the prestigious HEB tournament.

Senior Dmitry Novikov will lead the Islander team in the matches this week after winning 2-of-3 matches at the No. 1 singles position.

After the non-conference match on Tuesday, the Islanders will return home against the Texas-Pan American Broncs. The match is set for a 4 PM start time at the Corpus Christi Country Club.
