MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (September 23, 2021) – The West Virginia University tennis team travels to Charleston, West Virginia, to co-host Thunder in the Mountains, alongside Marshall University, from Sept. 24-26.
“We’re very excited to be back playing this fall semester, especially in Charleston. It gives us an opportunity to play in front of fans,” said head coach Miha Lisac. “I’m looking forward to seeing how the team competes and how they progress and work towards their goals.”
