The Youngstown State women's tennis team opens fall tournament play at the Thunder In the Mountains Tournament hosted by Marshall and West Virginia in Charleston, W. Va., on Friday.

The three-day tournament is set to be held at Schoenbaum Tennis Courts (3511 Venable Ave, Charleston, WV 25304) and if the event moves indoors it will move to the Charleston YMCA (100 YMCA Dr, Charleston, WV 25311).

YSU returns the bulk of its lineup form last year's team. The Penguins return Imaan Hassim, Tamara Teufl, Lucia Zagar, Cassandra Moraleja, Elvira Esteo and Claudia Barboza. Hassim, Teufl, Zagar, Esteo and Moraleja combined to play 151 singles matches and 133 doubles a year ago.
