STARKVILLE, Miss. - This weekend, the Mississippi State's women's tennis team will conclude its fall season as the Lady Bulldogs travel to Sarasota, Fla., to compete in the Lakewood Ranch Intercollegiate Clay Court Classic.

Olesya Tsigvintseva, Roseline Dion, and Petra Ferancova will represent Mississippi State this weekend, along with Ekaterina Iakovleva who was unable to join the squad last week at the Eck Fall Classic due to illness.

Over the course of the weekend, the four Mississippi State participants will compete against opponents from Oklahoma State, Temple, Notre Dame, Tennessee, and Memphis.

"This weekend is our last event of the fall, and I hope we pick up a few more quality wins," remarked Coach Daryl Greenan.

In regards to the fall season as a whole, Coach Greenan feels that "it has been a solid fall" for the team. "We had a few injuries, but have had some highlights along the way. We saw some individual improvements, and overall it was an improvement from last fall."

Competition in Sarasota begins Friday.
