The Aggie women, directed by third-year head coach Howard Joffe, are coming off a historic season in which they reached the NCAA championship match, received a No. 3 final national ranking with a 26-4 record and won the Southeastern Conference title in their inaugural season in the league. The Aggies, who return five letterwinners and welcome four newcomers, will host 11 home matches, including seven contests against teams that were listed in the 2013 Intercollegiate Tennis Association final rankings.
The Aggie men are slated to play 14 contests at the friendly confines of the Mitchell Tennis Center. The schedule includes six match-ups against teams ranked in the top 40, including two top-10 contests. Head coach Steve Denton returns seven letterwinners from last year’s team that went 19-13 and made a 20th consecutive appearance in the NCAA tournament, advancing to the Sweet 16.
The men, who also captured the SEC Western Division title along the way and were No. 14 in the final 2013 rankings, open the spring season with home doubleheaders on three consecutive weekends beginning Jan. 19 as the Aggies face off against Louisiana-Lafayette and UT-Pan American. A&M welcomes UTSA and Lamar Jan. 25 and concludes the six-match home stand the following weekend with SMU and Nicholls State.
The men open SEC action on Feb. 28 when they welcome Florida to the Mitchell Center. South Carolina ventures to College Station on March 2 to wrap up the Aggies’ conference-opening home stand.
The Aggies take a break from SEC action on March 22 and March 25 when they host in-state and former Southwest Conference rivals TCU and Rice, respectively. The final homestretch for the Maroon and White comes against teams that all finished 2013 in the top 34 in the nation. On March 28, A&M welcomes national semifinalist and defending SEC-champion Georgia, and then on March 30, the Aggies host Tennessee, which was No. 6 in the final 2013 rankings. Alabama and Auburn journey to College Station on April 4 and 6, respectively, to conclude the Aggies’ final home stand of the regular season.
The Aggie women open their home season January 25-26 as they welcome Mississippi State, DePaul and San Jose State for the ITA Kick-Off weekend. The team that wins two matches advances to the ITA National Team Indoor Championship, to be hosted by the University of Virginia, Feb. 7-10.
The Aggies return home for matches against Sam Houston State (Feb. 16) and No. 20 Baylor (Feb. 20), their final tune-up matches before embarking on a challenging SEC slate. The women begin a four-match home stand in early March, hosting Kentucky (March 7), Vanderbilt (March 9), Arkansas (March 14) and LSU (March 16). After a quick trip to Baylor, the Aggies return to the Mitchell Tennis Center on March 23 to take on Missouri.
A&M concludes its regular-season home schedule April 11 and 13 as the Aggies play host to Ole Miss and Mississippi State, respectively.
