#BringTheRacquet: Saturday match, Wimbledon-inspired tailgate canceled

Some unfortunate news courtesy of Mother Nature.

With Wednesday’s blizzard still causing a travel nightmare across the Plains and Rockies, the 11 am DU Saturday women’s tennis match at Denver Tennis Park against South Dakota has been canceled. That also shelves the first annual Wimbledon-inspired party that was set to happen outside the Denver Tennis Park at 10 am.

We are dedicated to putting on this social event next season.

There was some discussion of trying to reschedule the South Dakota  match for next week, but Thursday afternoon the DU athletic department announced it would instead be played Friday April 19th at 1p.

The match versus the University of Nebraska Omaha originally scheduled for 1 pm Friday has been rescheduled for 6 pm. The Mustangs ultimately chose to drive from Omaha.

Associate head coach David Loewenthal is thankful to UNO for making that degree of effort.

“Omaha is making a big effort to get here to play us,” he said. ” We look forward to the battle, but more importantly, we hope to take care of business so we can root on (head men’s hockey coach David Carle) DC and the guys tomorrow night in the big ND hockey game!”

The DU women stand at 10-3 overall and 1-0 in Summit League play. The Nebraska-Omaha Mustangs are 2-12 overall and the Pioneers will be their first league match.

Former DU Atlanta Alumni Network president and recent “re-transplant” to Denver Jason Evans has joined the LetsGoDU team and will bring you all the latest news from the world of DU women’s tennis, defending Summit League champions the past five years. But do more than read – experience if you can! Come #bringtheracquet in person at their new home at I-25 and Franklin the Denver Tennis Park.
