LAWRENCE, Kan.–Still undefeated in dual competition, the University of Kansas women’s tennis team plays host to a pair of duals this weekend at the Jayhawk Tennis Center. KU will compete against the Bradley Braves on Saturday and Arkansas Little-Rock Trojans Sunday. Both meets are set to begin at 11 a.m. and are free and open to the public.

The Jayhawks are 3-0 so far during the spring season, their best start since 2009. The Braves come to Lawrence with a 2-6 record while the Trojans are an even 5-5 in spring duals.

Dreyer, a St. Louis native, remains undefeated in singles competition during the spring campaign. Last Sunday, Dreyer took down ISU’s Gabby Phillips, 6-2, 6-3, at the No. 5 position.
