The ISU tennis team has released its 2012–13 schedule on Tuesday, Aug. 28, according to a news release.

The fall season is slated to begin at the Drake Fall Invitational — a three-day tournament in Des Moines. Other tournaments in the fall include the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Regionals in Tulsa, Okla., the Kansas Fall Invitational in Lawrence, Kan., and the Western Michigan Fall Invitational in Kalamazoo, Mich.

“The fall will be great for us,” said fifth-year coach Armando Espinosa in a news release. “It’s a strong fall schedule, and we think it will give the team a really good preseason.”

Ten home meets are on schedule for the spring slate, including matchups against Iowa and Drake, along with conference matchups against Baylor, TCU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and West Virginia.

“We have a good combination of very solid teams, and teams that we feel we can compete against,” Espinosa said of the spring schedule. “We are really excited about how it all turned out, and we’re pleased with the strength of it and how the dates have panned out.”
