TUCSON, Ariz. -

Head coach Vicky Maes and the No. 31 Arizona Women’s Tennis team (10-4, 0-1) will host its first pair of Pac-12 teams to Robson Tennis Center this weekend. The Wildcats will host No. 36 Washington on Friday, March 23 at 1:30 p.m. and No. 72 Oregon on Saturday, March 24 at noon.

Arizona went undefeated at home in its non-conference season, defeating all 10 teams it hosted.

The Wildcats have been particularly strong in doubles, as they have earned the doubles point in five-consecutive matches.

The Ducks are 8-3 this season, but are coming off a 7-0 loss to No. 10 California. They are led by Julia Metzger and Patricia Skowronski, who play No. 1 and No. 2 singles, respectively.

Washington is led by the country’s 11th-ranked player and All-American Denise Dy. The Huskies are 6-5 on the season, but have lost their last three matches.

The Wildcats are seeking their first conference win after falling to Washington State in Pullman, Wash. last weekend.
