Women’s tennis is preparing to host their first home game of the spring season this weekend. They will square off with the 65th-ranked University of Arizona Wildcats on Friday and the 51st-ranked University of Oregon on Sunday.

The Cougars have started the season a bit slow this semester, dropping their first five matches of the season on the road.

All five matches have been on the road against some tough competition, such as the University of Wisconsin and Texas Christian University, while dropping a close match their last time out with a 4-3 loss against DePaul University.

The Cougars still hold on to a 44th-placed ranking this season and will be looking to bounce back against Arizona and Oregon this weekend to earn their first win.

Both of those teams each opened the season with losses but have come back to put up some impressive wins in the early going.

Junior Despoina Vogasari, the 34th-ranked singles player in the nation, will be hoping to get the Cougars on track. Vogasari is 12-6 so far this season, the best mark on the team and has chance to improve upon that this weekend.

Both matches start at noon on Friday and Sunday and will be played at the John E. Hoff courts.
