Central Tennis Teams Make Spring Break Trek to the Lone Star State

Central College’s men’s and women’s tennis teams are among several of the Dutch athletic programs that have planned an active spring break in the southern states. Both squads will face a trio of Texas schools in hopes of improving for their remaining contests against Iowa Conference teams.

The Central men are 2-8 at the midway point of their regular season and will tackle the University of Texas-Dallas Monday; Howard Payne University on Tuesday; and face 2010 National Junior College champion Tyler Community College on Wednesday. The three schools sport a combined record of 16-7.

It won’t be any easier for the Central women’s tennis team, as Texas-Dallas and Tyler each boast impressive records as well, while Howard Payne is 1-5. During the trip the Dutch have also planned a few team activities and a stop for practice at the 24-court Oklahoma City Tennis Center at Will Rogers Park.
