Texas Tech one of 15 host sites for 2011 event

LUBBOCK, Texas The 2010 Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Kick-Off Weekend draft took place on Thursday for schools participating in the 2011 Kick-Off Weekend in January. The highest ranked Division I teams, that are not a host site, selected which of the 15 sites they wished to play at and filled all 60 spots available. 

The teams that finished ranked in the top 15 at the end of the prior season are given the option to host first and second rounds. If a team opts not to compete in the Kick-Off Weekend, then the next highest ranked team takes its spot as a host. 

The Red Raiders ended the 2010 season ranked 15th in the country and will be one of 15 host sites. Tech will host No. 18 California, No. 32 Auburn and No. 46 LSU on Jan. 29-30. First-round match-ups will be Tech versus LSU and California against Auburn. 

"We are very excited to host this event," said head coach Tim Siegel. "This is as strong a region as there is. LSU is usually a top 25 team and had a down year this season, so it's a strong region from top to bottom." 

The No. 1 team in each site will face the No. 4 team. The No. 2 team will play the No. 3 team. Two matches are guaranteed – the winners/losers will play the following day. The 15 schools that win both of their matches at these events will be invited to play in the Feb. 18-21 ITA National Team Indoor Championship hosted by the University of Washington.
