BOONE, N.C. — Appalachian State University women’s tennis revealed its schedule for the 2014-15 season on Tuesday. The schedule includes three matches during fall competition and eight home contests during the spring championship season.

The Mountaineers will participate in three fall tournaments including the Wake Forest Invitational (Oct. 4-6), ITA Regional Tournament (Oct. 16-19) and East Carolina Invitational (Oct. 22-23).

Appalachian opens the spring championship season at North Carolina (Jan. 9), UNC finished as the runner-up at last year’s NCAA Championships, suffering a narrow 4-3 loss to UCLA in the national championship match.

Appalachian kicks off its home schedule with three-straight matches at Yonahlossee Racquet Club against ETSU (Jan. 24), North Carolina A&T (Jan. 25) and Arkansas State (Jan. 30).

The rest of the home schedule include matches against Presbyterian (Feb. 14), West Virginia State (Feb. 15), Radford (Feb. 20), North Carolina Central (Feb. 22) and King College (April 1). The squad’s first seven home matches are all slated to be played indoors at Yonahlossee during the cold winter months in Boone.

App State’s road slate includes in-state contests against ECU (Feb. 7), Gardner-Webb (Feb. 21), UNC Asheville (March 7), Wake Forest (March 22), Charlotte (March 24), UNCG (March 28), Western Carolina (March 29) and Davidson (April 11).

The Mountaineers will also face College of Charleston, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, South Alabama and Troy on the road. The 2015 Sun Belt Conference Championships are slated to take place in New Orleans from April 16-19.

The Sun Belt will not crown a regular-season champion in 2015, but the team that wins the league tournament will earn an automatic bid to the 2015 NCAA Championships.
