BOISE, Idaho - The Boise State men's tennis team will do its part to add to this week's homecoming festivities as the Broncos are set to host 14 schools in the 2010 Boise State Fall Tennis Classic, Friday-Sunday (Oct. 8-10), with matches being played at the Appleton Tennis Center and Julia Davis Park.
The Broncos will welcome student-athletes from the Air Force Academy, Brigham Young University, Eastern Washington University, Gonzaga University, University of Idaho, University of Montana, Montana State University, University of Oregon, Portland University, Seattle University, University of Utah, Utah State University and Weber State University.
The tournament field will be broken into three brackets: two collegiate and one open flight. Matches will begin at 8 a.m. on Friday, and 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. All matches throughout the weekend will be free admission.
Boise State at All-American Tournament...
Boise State won't have a full roster competing at this weekend's Fall Classic, as the Broncos are also being represented at the D'Novo/ITA All-American Tournament in Tulsa, Okla. Juniors James Meredith and Damian Hume are competing for Boise State this week against some of the nation's top collegiate players.
Hume received a bid into the qualifying singles tournament, while he and Meredith will also compete in qualifying doubles. Meredith, meanwhile, received an automatic bid into the singles main draw with his No. 40 preseason national ranking.
Long road ahead...
Bronco fans looking to catch a glimpse of the men's tennis team will need to take advantage of this weekend's home tournament as Boise State will not play in Boise again until March 5, 2011. The Broncos have several fall tournaments remaining on their schedule, but all will be away from home. The men will then kick-off the 2011 indoor season with nine duals and two tournaments on the road before hosting Utah.
