The Eastern Washington University men's tennis team begins its 2007-08 season on Friday (Sept. 28) with the beginning of the three-day Pacific Northwest Collegiate Cup, to be played in Portland, Ore.
"Our men's team will play in a really competitive tournament against some top schools," interim head coach Darren Haworth said. "This is the first test of the season for the men. I have high expectations for them."
The Eagles will play against players from Gonzaga, Idaho, Linfield, Portland, Portland State and Whitman.
Last spring, Eastern had an incredible campaign, advancing to the Big Sky Conference's championship match after having never previously even won a postseason match. Eastern's win total of 14 was the highest since the 1985 squad went 13-10.
