HOUSTON – Head Coach Courtney Steinbock and the Houston Cougar Women’s Tennis team are excited to announce the 2018 spring competition schedule, which includes 13 matches inside Winston Tennis Facility.
The Cougars welcome Lamar to campus to open the spring season in a contest set for 2 p.m., to kick off a six match homestand to begin the year. From there, the Cougars host a trio of teams from the Southland Conference, when Texas A&M-Corpus Christi visits Jan. 26, and Sam Houston State and Incarnate Word travel to Houston for a double-header on Jan. 28.
Houston closes the homestand with a double-header against Southern and Prairie View the following week, on Feb. 3, before hitting the road for the first time in the spring for a pair of matches against Nevada and Arizona on Feb. 10 and 11, respectively, in Tucson, Ariz.

The Cougars meet New Mexico State on Feb. 18 before closing out February with matches against American Athletic Conference foe UConn on Feb. 23 and Northwestern State on Feb. 25.
