The tennis season has already started. The UTA men’s tennis team faced the university of TCU last Tuesday February 21st at the UTA tennis courts. The mavericks started out playing very well doubles and they were able to win the first point opening the day with a lead. However the frogs who are ranked 44th in the nation came back very strong after the break and knocked down the mavericks winning 5 out of 6 sinlge matches. Only local player Jason Lateko was able to give the mavericks a singles’ victory. Both men’s and women’s tennis team will face Nichols State University on February 28th at the UTA tennis courts.
