BATON ROUGE -- The LSU women’s tennis team will participate in the 2019 Intercollegiate Tennis Association Kick-Off Weekend by competing in the Florida State regional in Tallahassee, Florida beginning Friday at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

The Tigers will square off against Clemson in the first round on Friday at 12 p.m. CT before playing either No. 15 Florida St. or Tennessee on Saturday. 

LSU is one of 60 women’s tennis programs selected by national ranking to compete across 15 regional sites in the 11th installment of the ITA Kick-Off Weekend. The winning team at each regional will advance to the ITA National Indoor Championships in Seattle, Washington. 

The Tigers advanced to National Indoors in 2016 for the first time in program history after winning the Georgia Tech Kick-Off regional. Last season, the Tigers fell to Washington 4-3 in the first round of play but clinched a 4-1 win over Fresno State in the consolation round of the Durham Kick-Off regional. 

LSU is currently 1-0 in the 2019 season after a 6-1 road win against UCF in the season opener. 

Live stats for the match will be available at LSUsports.net
