For the second time this year, the men's and women's tennis teams will have to wait to open their home Big South schedule at home, as their matches slated against Presbyterian on Saturday have been postponed.

One of the warmer weeks this calendar year in the greater Lynchburg area has returned to the colder and wet side, as the forecast for Saturday calls for rain all day and temperatures in the lower 40s.

Both the men's and women's teams were scheduled to open their home Big South round of matches against Coastal Carolina during the final weekend of February. But rain washed out the pair of matches. No matchup date has been announced for either conference matches.

The men's team, who is 10-4 on the year, will return to action first among the pair of programs, as Liberty travels to Harrisonburg, Va., to square off against James Madison on Tuesday.

The Lady Flames, who recently evened their overall mark at 6-6 on the year, will not take to the courts until both programs travel to Asheville, N.C., next weekend, for Big South Conference action against UNC Asheville.
