ARLINGTON, Texas – UT Arlington women’s tennis begins its 2013 season Sunday, Feb. 3 versus Old Dominion at 10 a.m. at the UTA Tennis Center.

The Lady Monarchs of Old Dominion are 4-0 on the season and will face No. 38 TCU and No. 54 North Texas before traveling to Arlington to face the Mavericks.
