SALT LAKE CITY - The University of Utah men's tennis team is preparing this week for the All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla. The ITA All-American Championships is the biggest tournament for the Utes this fall and they will be represented by a record-tying five student-athletes.

Seniors Devin Lane, Alejandro Medinilla and Ben Tasevac, as well as junior Cedric Willems will start in the pre-qualifying on Saturday, Sept. 28, while 84th-ranked junior Slim Hamza will start in the qualifying draw on Monday, Sept. 30.

Hamza and Lane will be Utah's first doubles team to compete in the ITA All-American Championships since 2005 when the Utes were represented by Zach Granger and Miron Mann.

Last year, the Utes also went down to Tulsa with five players. Slim Hamza made it into the round of 16 and Dmytro Mamedov lost in the first round of the main draw.
