ARLINGTON, Texas - The UT Arlington women's tennis team heads to Denton this weekend to take on area rivals at the Metroplex Mania.
The end of the fall season tournament is a competition between the Mavericks, UNT, SMU, Collin County JC, Tyler JC and TCU.
"It is a fun deal where we can get together and have a gathering of the teams," UT Arlington coach Diego Benitez said. "There is solid competition there between the teams. It will be more of a regular format with two matches each day and each day against a different school."
The Mavericks found success during the course of the fall season. Angeles de los Rios claimed a consolation draw win at the ITA Regional Tournament held at TCU on Oct. 22, while Giada D'ortona took first in the singles Draw F of the 2013 USTA BJK NTC Women's College Invitational in New York in October.
UTA will begin its first season competing in the Sun Belt Conference in the spring as team competition begins.
