San Diego, California - San Diego State women's tennis kicks off its fall slate this weekend when it hosts SDSU Fall Classic I, the first of the team’s three fall events. The annual tournament brings four teams to the Mesa from Friday, September 28, through Sunday, September 30, 2018.
The list of opponents visiting the Aztec Tennis Center this weekend include returners Grand Canyon University, Cal State Northridge and the University of Texas-El Paso, as well as conference opponent Air Force.
The tournament will begin at 9 a.m. each day with two doubles brackets. Five brackets of singles play will immediately follow doubles competition all three days.
SDSU returns five players from last year’s squad, including seniors Magda Aubets and Jenny Moinard, junior Mia Smith and sophomores Abbie Mulbarger and Nnena Nadozie. The team welcomed five freshmen this fall—Lauren Anderson, Ellen Ashley, Shakhnoza Khatamova, Aesha Patel and Agustina Rimoldi Godoy—who will compete for the first time on the Mesa this weekend. The team is also expecting incoming freshman Alicia Melosch to join the roster in spring 2019.
Admission to Fall Classic I is free and fans are encouraged to park in P7 on the corner of 55th Street and Montezuma Road. The Aztec Tennis Center is located just beyond Tony Gwynn Stadium, SDSU Softball Stadium and the Aztec Aquaplex on the northwest edge of campus.
New Parking Options in Effect at SDSU
There are three ways to pay for parking at San Diego State – in advance, day-of by the PayByPhone app and day-of at pay stations around campus. For those interested in paying in advance, visitors can purchase a permit online through Parking & Transportation Services' Aztec Parking Portal. The cost is $7 for a daily permit. The permit would need to be printed and displayed on the dash.
The first of two day-of options is using the PayByPhone app, which gives visitors the option of purchasing parking in all student and visitor lots. The app requires payment and vehicle information, and once that is complete, customers can choose a location on campus to park and pay through the app. The app also has the ability to send a text message when the permit is set to expire and allows for an extension of time. Through the app, it is $3 per hour plus a $0.35 per-transaction fee for 1-4 hours and $15 plus the $0.35 per-transaction fee for a 5-10-hour block.
The second day-of method is at pay stations located at CSL (Parking Info Booth), P3 Level 1, P7 Level 2 (structure closest to athletics facilities) and P12 Level 8. Permits purchased at any of these locations are valid in any student or visitor lot and require license plate information before the transaction is complete. The permit does not need to be printed since the license plate information will be entered in the system. Visitors who use credit card for payment instead of cash can opt in and have the system send a reminder text when the permit is set to expire with the ability to extend the time. There are no transaction fees at the pay station other than a $0.25 addition for those who extend their time.
