No. 16 Baylor travels to take on No. 2 Vanderbilt at 3 p.m. Friday and Kentucky at 9 a.m. Sunday. The women’s tennis squad started its season with 7-0 victories over Western Michigan and New Mexico a week ago.
“We have a very young team this season and our expectations are simple,” head coach Joey Scrivano said in a statement. “We want to be prepared and compete. Our goal as a coaching staff is to help our players focus and be the best version of themselves. Our highly competitive schedule will help us get out of our comfort zone and give us an opportunity to show what we are capable of.”
Vanderbilt returns seven players from its 2017 NCAA Final Four squad, which closed the season at 24-6 overall and 12-1 in the SEC to claim the program’s first regular season conference title. Recording wins over LSU, South Carolina and Florida, the Commodores won their first SEC tournament title.
Kentucky, a team that is receiving votes nationally, advanced to the second round of the 2017 NCAA Championship before falling to Michigan, 4-2.
