Cats Travel to Georgia This Weekend

MANHATTAN, Kan. Kansas State women’s tennis will travel to the Georgia Invitational this weekend, Jan. 18-20, for final preparations before dual play begins in February. The Wildcats will have seven student-athletes competing this weekend.  

 

The Wildcats will face the same schools it faced during the 2007 edition of the Georgia Invitational, taking on No. 5 Georgia, Mississippi State and Troy. Each day teams will play singles and doubles matches with the efforts counting towards just the players’ records.

 

During the fall campaign Kansas State was led by senior Viviana Yrureta with a 6-6 record, which included a streak of five wins in six matches. K-State’s top doubles team to date has been pairing of sophomore Natasha Vieira and junior Katerina Kudlackova. The tandem has registered a 5-3 record, including a four match winning streak.

 

K-State’s dual play schedule begins February 2 in Ahearn Field House against Syracuse at 10 a.m. During the spring, the Wildcats will face 10 teams that are ranked among the top-75 in the preseason ITA Rankings, including five teams ranked amongst the top-35.
