DES MOINES, Iowa. - The Illinois State men's tennis team will travel to Des Moines, Iowa, to compete in the Missouri Valley Conference Individual Championships hosted by Drake, Nov. 8-10. The Redbirds will take on fellow MVC foes: Drake, Wichita State, Southern Illinois and Bradley.

The squad of seven has participated in five tournaments this fall season, and the team is ready to leave it all on the courts. Head coach Mark Klysner knows his team will be ready for this weekend's MVC Championships.

"I have very high expectations for the guys this weekend, as I do for every tournament. We have the potential and the level of players who can win any tournament we play in. This weekend is no different," Klysner said.

The MVC Individual Championships run all day Friday and will take place at the Roger Knapp Tennis Center. Follow live tournament updates on twitter with the hashtag #MVCTENNIS.
