Valparaiso University men's tennis coach Jim Daugherty
has announced the completion of his 2007 spring schedule which includes four home matches, including three at the Valparaiso University Tennis Complex.
The Brown and Gold open their spring season on February 2 at DePaul as part of a three-match road trip to start the year. Also on the road, Valpo will make trips to Michigan State, Marquette, Western Michigan, Ball State, Bradley, Dayton, Xavier (Ohio), and IPFW in non-conference play.
Valpo will host Eastern Illinois on February 11 at Matchpoint in Griffith for the home opener. As the weather warms up, the Crusaders will also host Chicago State, Butler, and UIC at the Valparaiso University Tennis Complex.
The Mid-Continent Conference clusters take place in Indianapolis, Ind. and Shreveport, La. this year, with Valpo playing three league matches the first weekend and two more the second in preparation for the Mid-Continent Conference Tournament slated for April 27-28 in Tulsa, Okla.
