WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The 27th-ranked Purdue women's tennis team will host the Purdue Invite Friday-Sunday at the Basham Courts of the Schwartz Tennis Center. The Boilermakers will host No. 70 Louisville, Miami (Ohio) and Kansas. Featured in the tournament is No. 110 Mara Schmidt for Purdue along with Louisville No. 2 doubles team of Julia Fellerhoff and Rebecca Shine.

The tournament will feature a hidden dual-match format, meaning each team will play each other once in singles and doubles, though a particular team will not play singles and doubles against the same team on the same day.
