CHICAGO — DePaul women's tennis head coach Mark Ardizzone has released the Blue Demons' 2013-14 schedule. DePaul will kick off its upcoming season this weekend at the Michigan Invitational in Ann Arbor, Mich.
The Blue Demons return all nine players from last year's squad into the new year, including one senior, Kelsey Lawson, four juniors and four sophomores. The program's lone newcomer is assistant coach Kata Szekely, a two-time All-American and two-time All-SEC selection at the University of Tennessee.
The Michigan Invitational is the first of five fall tournaments for the Blue Demons. They will compete at the All-American Pre-Qualifier in Los Angeles, Calif., on Sept. 28-29 and the Wildcat Invitational in Evanston, Ill., on Oct. 4-6 before returning to Ann Arbor for the ITA Midwest Regionals on Oct. 11-15.
DePaul concludes its fall slate with another trip to Evanston for the Northwestern Fall Invite on Nov. 8-10.
In the spring, the Blue Demons will start the season off at the Northwestern Winter Classic on Jan. 17-19. Dual matches begin at the ITA Indoor Qualifier on Jan. 25 with a match against San Jose State.
The Blue Demons will play their first dual match in Chicago on Jan. 31 against TCU and will follow with a Feb. 1 date against Louisville. The two home dual matches are the first of seven in Chicago for DePaul in 2014.
