Women's Tennis Begins Fall Season at the MTSU Shootout

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Belmont women's tennis team opens up its 2011 fall season this weekend at the MTSU Shootout in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. 

Head Coach Mark Srouji's 2011-12 squad includes six returning letterwinners and one newcomer.  He hopes this group can improve on their 8-12 record for last season and earn a spot in the Atlantic Sun Tournament. 

The Bruins are led by senior Laura Stack and junior Natalia Nunes.  Stack, a Brentwood, Tennessee native posted 10 singles wins and 11 doubles wins last season.  Nunes, from Brazil, also had 10 singles wins last year and led the team in doubles wins with 15. 

The tournament will be a round-robin event on Saturday and Sunday that includes Belmont, Austin Peay, Lipscomb, and host MTSU.  All matches will be played at the Buck Bouldin Tennis Center on the MTSU campus.  Matches will begin each day at 9:00am.  For more information on the event, go to www.goblueraiders.com.
