The Rice women's tennis team's weekend assignment was cut in half on Wednesday when LSU had to postpone its Friday dual match due to residual issues related to the recent winter storms.
However, the Owls match with top ranked Stanford on Saturday will take place as scheduled and the Rice Athletics and the Women's Athletics Advisory Board will host a special pre-match tailgate prior to contest between the 22nd ranked Owls and the defending NCAA Champions at Jake Hess Tennis Stadium.
The tailgate will start at 11:30 in advance of the first serves in doubles at noon. All fans will enjoy free pizza and drinks, while the first 100 fans in attendance will receive free Rice Tennis t-shirts. All fans will also be able to participate in a drawing for an HD flat screen television, which will be announced at the conclusion of the doubles portion of the dual.
The LSU dual will be rescheduled for later this season.
