CORAL GABLES, FLA. – The No. 65 LSU women’s tennis team (2-0) will face No. 59 South Florida (1-0) Friday at 1 p.m. CST in the opening round of the ITA Kickoff Weekend. 

“The kickoff weekend is a great opportunity to get a look at some of the top teams,” said LSU head coach Julia Sell.  “It’s a high quality event.  It’s just a great chance to see where we are at.”   

In its last outing, LSU went 2-0 in the home opening double header against Nicholls and Southern.  Freshman Joana Vale Costa won her first two singles matches as a Lady Tiger and partnered with another freshman, Skylar Holloway, to notch two doubles victories as well.  Holloway and freshman Abigail Owens also earned singles victories in each match. 

The Lady Tigers have a 2-3 series record against USF but have not faced the Bulls since Feb. 24, 1998.
