BUENA VISTA, Va. —Southern Virginia University men's tennis coach Tom Snelson today announced the team's 2017-18 schedule.

"We are looking forward to playing more matches in the fall this season than we have before," Coach Snelson said. "This will balance our schedule and help cut down on travel in the spring."

The Knights will open their non-traditional season at Shepherd University on September 13, and will have two home matches during the fall season.

The traditional season will begin at home on February 21 against Lynchburg. Capital Athletic Conference play will begin on the road on March 23. The Knights will have four straight home conference matches from March 30-April 14.
