ISLANDER TENNIS TEAMS TRAVEL TO EDINBURG TO TAKE ON TEXAS-PAN AMERICAN

The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi men's and women's tennis teams will travel to play Texas-Pan American on Wednesday in Edinburg. The men's match will be a Southland affair as the Broncs men's team is an associate member of the conference while the women's match will be a non-conference match.

The men come into the match with a 7-12 overall record but a 1-0 mark in Southland matches. They are riding a 17-match conference winning streak after going undefeated the last two seasons in conference play. The women are 7-9 after falling last Saturday to the undefeated and league leading Northwestern State in Natchitoches, La.

The women are led into the match by Mirna Cicak with a 9-4 record at the No. 1 singles position and Doris Kuselj at the No. 2 spot with a record of 12-1. The sophomore Cicak lost her first conference match of the season on Saturday while Kuselj remains undefeated in the Southland as a freshman.

On the men's side, Dmitry Novikov leads the team at the No. 1 spot with a record of 7-5 while James Langford is 10-5 at the No. 2 singles position.

The matches are scheduled to begin at 1 PM. The women's match will stop when the match is clinched for either team while the men's match will be played out in its entirety due to it being a Southland Conference match.
