            Play will begin with doubles on Friday morning at 10 a.m. with two rounds of singles to follow.  On Saturday, doubles action will get under way at 9 a.m. with two rounds of singles and as well as the championship round of doubles.

            “I am very excited about hosting our own tournament,” Valpo head coach Jim Daugherty said.  “This will give us a glimpse of some of the Horizon League schools we will face this year.  The level of competition looks to be stronger this year and this should be an exciting event for the players and spectators.”
