CARBONDALE, IL. - The Salukis will conclude their regular season with three home Missouri Valley Conference matches this weekend. SIU will welcome, Indiana State on Friday, Bradley on Saturday and Illinois State on Sunday, to the SIU Arena Tennis Courts this weekend.
The Salukis come into the weekend looking to improve on their (5-10, 3-2 MVC) record and hope to build some momentum heading into the MVC championships. SIU will get their weekend under way with a match against a very solid Indiana State team. The Sycamores come into this weekend with a 10-10 overall record and an impressive 6-1 mark in MVC play. ISU is lead by Jennifer Migan at the No. 1 singles spot.
SIU will continue their three match home stand on Saturday as they will do battle with the Braves of Bradley. Bradley is looking to pick up their first MVC win of the season and will look to Teri Chan to lead the way for BU as Chan comes into the weekend riding a four match winning streak at the No. 4 singles position.
Southern will conclude their season on Sunday with a match against the Redbirds of Illinois State. ISU should be a tough match for the Salukis as the Redbirds are 13-7 on the year with a 6-1 record in MVC play. The Redbirds will be counting on Laura Gravino to continue to play well, as they search for their seventh MVC win of the year.
Friday's match up against Indiana State will begin at 2:00 p.m. at the SIU Arena Tennis Courts, while the Bradley and Illinois State matches will begin at 10:00 a.m this weekend. All results for this weekend's matches can be found at www.SIUSalukis.com
