FAIRFAX, Va. –
The George Mason University men's tennis team has released its 2019 spring schedule, which includes four home matches and a road contest at James Madison.
"The team has been working hard this summer and fall, I am excited about our potential," head coach Jimmy Davis said. "Our goal is to improve ourselves under pressure so we can capitalize on more 3-all and third set situations. That is where we fell short in some matches last year. We are confident that our schedule and the continual desire to work hard to make improvements will be the factors that pull the momentum to our side."
The Patriots open the spring slate with the rivalry matchup against the Dukes on January 25 at 1 p.m. Mason remains on the road for two contests in the Tar Heel State. The Green & Gold battle East Carolina on February 1 in Greenville then battle UNC Asheville on February 2.
