Three Irish student-athletes are slated to compete in Tulsa.

Hagar, who ranks at No. 70 in the preseason poll, and Covalschi will also both compete in qualifying singles, beginning Monday, while sophomore Alex Lebedev is slated to compete in pre-qualifying matches beginning Saturday. Draws have not yet been released, but will be updated on the ITA website.

Last Time Out

The Irish kicked off the season two weeks ago at Harvard’s Chowdah fest, collecting a pair of runner-up finishes at the event. Hagar took second in the singles competition with a 2-1 weekend record, while Hagar and Lebedev combined for a runner-up finish in doubles with a 3-1 mark.
