MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Sept. 16, 2013) – West Virginia University tennis coach Miha Lisac announced the schedule for the 2013 fall season.

“Fall semester, we really take the approach of building and getting better,” Lisac says. “I am less concerned with what tournaments we are competing in, than how we are competing.”

In his first season at the helm, Lisac and the Mountaineers will open their 2013 fall campaign at the Air Force Tournament in Air Force Academy, Colo., Sept. 27-29.

“I am looking forward to the team getting better and making sure that when it comes to competition, we are doing the things that we are learning,” says Lisac. “I am a firm believer in doing the right things, growing, getting better and letting the results take care of themselves.”

WVU will continue its season at the University of Akron in Akron, Ohio, from Oct. 4-6. October ends for the Mountaineers with the International Tennis Association (ITA) Regional from Oct. 18-21 in Charlottesville, Va.
The fall season concludes at the Big Green Invite in Hanover, N.H., Nov. 1-3.

“It is a great opportunity for the team to learn and compete against outside competition,” says Lisac. “It is a great way to learn from new situations and to upgrade our game against outside opponents, so it is a crucial part of our preparation.”

Last season, the Mountaineers finished 4-17. WVU returns three sophomores and one junior to lead the incoming class of four freshmen.
