LAS CRUCES, N.M. – The New Mexico State women’s tennis team took part in cleaning up along the roadway as part of the Adopt A Highway program on Saturday, Nov. 9.
This marked the third-straight year that the team has been involved in the New Mexico Department of Transportation’s Adopt A Highway program. The stretch of road between Triviz Drive and Cholla Road was adopted by the women’s and men’s tennis programs and is approximately three miles in length.
“We really wanted to impact not just the community, but NM State as well,” head coach Ivan Fernandez said. “It gives us a great feeling of ownership and responsibility when we drive on Triviz and see our sign posted here on campus.”
The stretch of road sits along the NM State campus, just east of the Pan American Center.
The NM State women’s tennis team begins the spring dual season on Feb. 2 at University of Arizona.
