The school has barely started and the Utes are already preparing for their first events of the school year. While last year’s starters will compete at the ITF F24 Futures in Costa Mesa, California, the remainder of the team will compete at the open event at the USTA Fall Classic at BYU in Provo, Utah.
“I am excited to get the season started and happy that we can provide our student-athletes the opportunity to compete in Futures events,” said head coach FD Robbins. “It will be interesting to see how they match up against other participants in the Futures.”
At last year’s Futures event in Costa Mesa, Slim Hamza made it to the fourth and final round of the qualifying, while Devin Lane made it to the third round. Joining Lane and Hamza this year are senior Ben Tasevac, junior Cedric Willems and team captain Alejandro Medinilla.
“It’s a great opportunity for them to get some matches under their belts and for us coaches to see where we stand.”
