PROVO, Utah – Cougar men’s tennis heads out on the road for their first road tests of the young season. BYU travels to New Orleans to face the University of New Orleans, Saturday and Tulane University on Monday.

“We are excited about the opportunity to play two teams we have never played before in the historic city of New Orleans,” BYU head coach Brad Pearce said. “We have been working hard since our home opener and hope to see some improvement in our play.”

The Cougars will look to bounce back from a disappointing home split in last weekend’s home opener. BYU beat Weber State 6-1 but fell to Utah State 4-3. Freshman, Shane Monroe led the Cougars on the day with victories at No. 1 singles in both matches. Andrey Goryachkov also tallied two victories Saturday, coming from behind in both to win in the third set. The Cougars were also able to capture the doubles point in both matches.

This is the first meeting between BYU and both of this weekend’s opponents and will be a good measurement for the progression of this season’s squad. The Cougars return home Saturday, January 24 to host Air Force at the BYU indoor tennis courts.
