A-State will play 18 regular-season matches in 2013, including nine home outings, 10 nonconference matches and an eight-game Sun Belt Conference slate.
The Red Wolves return seven starters and 20 letterwinners from a 2012 team that recorded an 11-8-1 overall posted and set the school top mark for most wins in a single season.
“For the first time in school history we begin a new year on the heels of a winning season,” Ziyenge said. “This will be a big challenge for our 2013 team which is tasked with keeping the momentum going. The level of competition on this schedule will definitely require us to always be at our best.”
