AUBURN, Ala. - The 2011 Auburn women's tennis season kicks off this weekend as the Tigers travel to Ann Arbor, Mich., for the 2011 ITA Indoor Qualifier on the campus of the University of Michigan. The 59th-ranked Tigers open with a 1 p.m. match against eighth-ranked Michigan Saturday. Auburn concludes the tournament Sunday against either No. 46 North Carolina State or No. 18 Southern California.
"We're very excited to get the spring season started," head coach Tim Gray said. "We have a tough road ahead for us this weekend as all the teams in this tournament are very strong. We hope to get a good indication of where we stand and couldn't think of a better way to start the spring with quality opponents."
The Auburn women's tennis team is comprised of one junior, three sophomores and four freshmen. Junior Taylor Schriemann and sophomores Plamena Kurteva, Paulina Schippers and Caroline Thornton are set to lead freshmen Maria Arechavaleta, Olivia Bennett, Jacqueline Kasler and Emily Newton this season.
