Tennis Teams Host Prairie View A&M In Non-Conference Home Matches

The Texas A&M – Corpus Christi Men's and Women's Tennis teams will host the Prairie View A&M Panthers on Thursday afternoon, with the women starting at 2 p.m., and the men starting soon after at 3 p.m. on the courts at the Thomas J. Henry Tennis Center.

The Islander women (10-2) will start first, trying to duplicate their 7-0 win over the Panthers in Prairie View on Feb. 5 the first time the teams met. The men (8-7) picked up a 6-1 victory that same day, winning all but one singles matches and winning the doubles point.

The women are coming off of a tough loss against No. 27 Rice on Tuesday afternoon, but it was just the second loss of the season for the team, which reached the national rankings for the first time in program history this season.

The men's team went 1-2 at the Rice Tournament last weekend, beating Radford in the middle match, while falling against No. 33 Oregon and the now 66th-ranked Rice Owls.

Live updates will be available during the matches by following the team on Twitter (@IslandersTennis).
