2013 Whitman Tennis Schedule

Hi all,

On the blog, I've posted a pdf of our 2013 schedule.  We're so excited to have so many great matches at home and our February in Walla Walla will be a hot one even if it's cold and we play indoors under our new lights in Bratton.  First off, we host a great DIII weekend Feb 7th-10th that we're calling the Whitman Winter Classic, where nationally ranked UC Santa Cruz will be joined by NWC contenders Linfield and Willamette for matches on our courts.

The following weekend we host greatly improved Lewis and Clark and DI University of Idaho.  This weekend is one I'm looking at for our Family/Alumni weekend so don't hesitate to ask about that as I continue planning.

March is our road month with no home matches as we travel to Spokane, Tacoma and Portland before heading south to California for Spring Break.  It's a split trip starting with Central Region power Washington University (St. Louis), then the two top ranked Texas teams in Southern Cal followed by matches against West contenders UCSC and Redlands in Santa Cruz, CA.

After some much earned time off, we'll get right back to work in April on our home courts with two NWC weekends and we'll finish with the NWC Tournament at the top seed where we'll look to defend our title and earn another May trip to the NCAA tournament.

If you are coming to Whitman for matches, please let me know as we're excited to see our families, alums, friends and supporters.  If you are planning on watching on the road and want to help organize fans or get involved in team meals and fun, again, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I hope you're all enjoying your fall,

Coach John
