Written by: NMSU Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES – The New Mexico State men's and women's tennis teams hit the road this weekend in fall tournament competition running from Friday, Oct. 5 through Sunday, Oct. 7.

The women's netters travel to Houston, Texas to compete in the University of Houston Cougar Fall Draw. NMSU's men's team travel north up I-25 to participate in the 2007 UNM Balloon Fiesta Classic.

On the women's side, senior Anne Fagegaltier (Montreuil, France) is seeking her 50th career singles victory. She enters Friday's competition just one win shy of the half century mark. She went 2-1 and finished in third place in the top singles flight at the Miner Fall Invite on Sept. 23, the Aggies only tournament this fall season.

Junior Paulina Zuniga (Guadalupe, Mexico) has 43 career singles victories coming into this weekend and she should surpass the 50-win plateau sometime this fall. Junior Stephanie Eusebe, impressive in her first career tournament as an Aggie, looks to continue her solid play this weekend.

In doubles action, sophomore Aleksa Costa (Sao Paulo, Brazil) and freshman Bianca Discordia (Zagreb, Croatia) are seeking their second doubles title together after winning the flight two doubles championship at the Miner Fall Invite.

Southern Mississippi, Sam Houston State, Southeastern Louisiana, Stephen F. Austin, Texas A&M Corpus Christi, Lee College, Houston and the Aggies all hit the John E. Hoff Courts for competition in Houston.

The Aggie men's tennis team plays in their third fall tournament over the weekend at New Mexico's Lobo Tennis Center. Air Force, Northern Arizona, Glendale Community College, Western New Mexico, Denver and UNM join the Aggies for competition.

Junior Roman Stoisavljevic (Zagreb, Croatia) and sophomore Gustave Diep (Paris, France), coming off their appearances at the Polo All-American Championships, look to build on their successes from a year ago.

Junior Stefan McKinney (Camarillo, Calif.) has started the year out on fire for the Aggies, compiling a team-best 8-2 singles mark in NMSU's first two tournaments. He and sophomore Alejandro de Mucha (Monterrey, Mexico) look to lead NMSU's doubles teams after their second place finish in the B doubles draw at the nationally renowned Baylor Invitational on Sept. 23.

Freshman Jim Brouleau (Poitiers, France) has gone 5-2 in singles play thus far this fall and he looks to continue to be a force to be reckoned with this weekend.
