The 19th-ranked women’s tennis team (6-0) looks to remain undefeated when they host #2 ranked Florida at the Hawkins Indoor Tennis Center on Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
The Lady Bears will hold another Cub Tennis Clinic for kids 11 and under prior to the match beginning at Noon. Admission is free to the match and clinic.
My grandkids have attended both of the clinics held so far and love going to them. The clinics have been well attended, and the kids are taught age/experience relevant tennis skills by players and coaches. The kids have a great time, plus get freebies at the end; last week the kiddos got Baylor tennis t-shirts and water bottles. (How you gonna beat that?!)
If you have not been out to watch the Women's Tennis team, you should do so. This is a very talented, well-coached group of athletes. Head coach Joey Scrivano has won the nine Big 12 regular season championships in his eleven seasons at Baylor and during the past nine seasons Baylor has dominated the Big 12 with a 90-5 record. Scrivano has been named Big 12 Coach of the Year four times and ITA Regional Coach of the Year three times in the past eleven seasons. Prior to Scrivano arriving at Baylor, the Bears had not won a regular season Big 12 or Southwest conference championship.
If you have not been to the Hawkins Indoor Tennis Center, you should go. It is an excellent facility that allows both Men's and Women's Tennis teams to play regardless of the central Texas weather. In the days of yore, when the weather turned bad, Baylor and its opponent would have to high-tail it up to Ennis in order to complete matches. Now, they just walk across La Salle Avenue and the Bears take care of business.
If you have a general disdain for the SEC, you definitely should be there this Saturday to cheer on the reigning Big 12 champs against the gatorettes of Florida. The match starts at 1:00 p.m., but get there at Noon and enjoy watching the Cubs learn how it's done!
