Women's Tennis Opens Fall Season
September 12, 2006

NORMAN, Okla. - The University of Oklahoma women’s tennis team is set to open its fall season Sept. 15-17 at the Baylor Fall Invitational in Waco, Texas.

Junior Gabby Baker will not be in attendance because she will make her debut at the All-American Invitational in Los Angeles, Calif., Sept. 30. The event runs through Oct. 1.

OU head coach Mark Johnson, who is entering his 19th year at Oklahoma, is excited for the fall season.

“I think it’s an excellent schedule,” said Johnson. ”We have four very strong events starting with Baylor in mid September and finishing with the regional championship in Tulsa in mid October.”

The Sooners return eight letterwinners from last year’s 9-16 (3-8 in Big 12) squad.

Baylor Invitational Field
The Baylor Invitational will consist of twelve teams from multiple conferences including the Big 12, USA and Southland.

Teams include, Louisville, UTA, SMU, Texas Tech, Abilene Christian, Sam Houston, Wyoming, Tulsa, Lamar and South Alabama.
