NORMAN, Okla. - The 25th-ranked Oklahoma women's tennis team plays its first road match of the season Friday in Los Angeles as part of the 2012 ITA Kick-Off Weekend.  OU will face Saint Mary's on Friday at noon at UCLA's Los Angeles Tennis Center.

The 2012 ITA Kick-Off Weekend is held at 15 different campuses across the country. A combined 60 teams will compete for a spot at the 2012 USTA/ITA National Team Indoor Championships, hosted next month by the University of Virginia.

The 15 universities hosting ITA Kick-Off Weekend events were designated as host sites in order of their 2011 Campbell/ITA final team ranking.

Featured in the LA competition of Kick-Off Weekend are fourth-ranked and host UCLA, OU, St. Mary's and Utah. 

The Sooners received the No. 2 seed in the LA bracket and will open with No. 3 seed St. Mary's.  OU will play either top-seeded UCLA or No. 4 seed Utah on Saturday in the consolation or qualifying match based on Friday's results.

OU enters the tournament after a 4-3 win over North Texas Tuesday in Norman.  The Sooners are off to a 3-0 start this season after opening the season with back-to-back wins over Drake, 6-1, and Arkansas-Little Rock, 7-0.
