Before Willamette plays at George Fox, the Bearcats are scheduled to host Linfield College in the final home match of the season on Friday, April 12. Match time between the Bearcats and the Wildcats is set for 4 p.m. (PDT) at the WU Tennis Courts.

If the Willamette versus Linfield match is forced indoors by the weather, the teams will play at the Courthouse Tennis Center (1379 Madison St. NE), starting at 4 p.m.
