HANOVER, N.H. - The Dartmouth men's tennis team has announced its 2013 spring schedule. The Big Green will be playing another competitive slate this spring, with potentially 14 opposing teams ranked nationally in the top 75. 

The Big Green will kick off their dual-match season by hosting Clemson of the ACC and Purdue of the Big 10 on Jan. 25 and 26, respectively. 

Dartmouth's first road contest will come on Feb. 3, when it travel to Bloomington, Ind., to take on nationally-ranked Indiana of the Big 10. 

After a three-match homestand in the beginning of February, the team travels to Ithaca, N.Y., as Cornell is hosting the 2013 ECAC Championships. At this event last season the squad went 2-1 with wins against Princeton and Cornell.

The following weekend of Feb. 24, Dartmouth will host nationally-ranked St. John's at 2 p.m. before heading on the road for six straight matches away from Hanover.

For spring break, the team will head south to compete against several mid-major conference programs.  The Big Green will begin their spring break in Wilmington, N.C., against nationally-ranked, UNC-Wilmington. They then play Elon and finish with two more nationally-ranked opponents as they visit Radford and East Tennessee State. 

In April, Dartmouth will begin its Ivy League schedule to close out its 2013 campaign. The Big Green, who finished last season ranked no. 49 in the nation, look to build on their 4-3 conference mark from a year ago.
