Monday, February 13, 2006 - Tennis starts FPU's busiest week

Fresno - Today, Monday, February 13, 2006, will be remembered as the day that intercollegiate tennis was first played at the Harold and Betty Haak Tennis Complex, but there is more to the story.

To be sure, at noon today, the Sunbirds men's tennis team, sporting a preseason No. 10 NAIA ranking, will host Azusa Pacific. It will be a great test as the Cougars are the defending NAIA National Champions and the No 1. ranked team in the country. FPU's women will take to the courts following completion of the men's matches. The Sunbirds are ranked No.2 in the preseason NAIA poll and the Cougars are No. 5.

But that is just the beginning.

In FPU's newly expanded Athletics Department there is something going on each and every day this week. In all, seven of FPU's 12 teams will compete in 20 contests over the next six days.

For the tennis teams the Cougars are the first of four opponents this week. FPU's baseball team, the other new kid on the block, will play doubleheaders in Azusa and Riverside this week. The FPU basketball teams each play three games this week, while FPU's track and field Sunbirds wrap up the week at the Azusa Pacific Indoor Qualifier in Azusa.

"This is great," said FPU Athletics director and volleyball coach Dennis Janzen. "This is exactly what we were looking for when we added Spring sports."
