SALT LAKE CITY – The University of Utah men’s tennis team will send three Utes to the 2014 Saint Francis Health System ITA Men’s All-American Championships, hosted by The University of Tulsa at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center in Tulsa, Okla. Competition will begin this weekend and continue to next week.

Senior Cedric Willems, junior Matt Cowley, and sophomore Parker McGuiness will begin the tournament Saturday in the pre-qualifying singles draw. Willems and Cowley will then represent the Utes in the qualifying doubles draw, beginning Monday, Sept. 29, and ending Wednesday, Oct.1. Senior Slim Hamza was forced to withdraw from the main draw due to an injury he sustained earlier this month.

Last season at the All-American Championships, No. 84 and 29th-seeded Slim Hamza reached the second round of the singles qualifying draw, while he and Willems advanced as far as the fourth round of the doubles qualifying draw.
