RICHARDSON, Tex. - Austin College Men's Tennis opened play in the fifth-annual UTD Invitational against the University of Texas at Dallas in doubles competition, and Texas A&M - Texarkana in singles.
The Kangaroos jumped all over the Comets in the four doubles lines, taking home wins at Lines 1, 3 and 4, and narrowly dropping Line 2 to a veteran tandem.
Later in singles, the Kangaroos were swept by the Eagles at all 7 lines, but valuable experience was earned by several young players and developing veterans.
Austin College returns tomorrow to compete in Men's doubles vs. A&M Texarkana, and Men's Singles against UT-Dallas.
