Rain, Travel Plans End Tennis Trip

ATHENS, Ga. – Inclement weather forced the LSU men’s tennis team to withdraw from the final day of the Southern Intercollegiate Championships in Athens, Ga., on Sunday.

Heavy rain forced all play to be moved indoors, resulting in delayed doubles draws and the cancellation of several consolation draws. Due to prior travel arrangements, the Tigers chose to withdraw from the tournament.

LSU will hit the road again next week when they travel to Houston, Texas, for the Rice Invitational. The Tigers will send eight players to the flighted tournament, which runs Oct. 1-3 at Jake Hess Tennis Stadium.
