Lost among spring football practice and baseball is the sport that claims our only 2 NCAA National Championships, women's tennis. Since that run in 2007, our tennis team has continued to let their presence be felt throughout the NCAA. Their quest for another team title begins Friday at the Bill Moore Tennis Center
against Jackson State
as the nationally seeded #9 team
(out of 16). The winner will face the winner of Ole Miss
. This will be their 10th consecutive season in making the tournament.
Once the team championships are over with, the individual tournament begins. Four Yellow Jackets have been selected to battle it out in that competition as well. The highlight of this tournament will be Amanda McDowell
as we should all watch her and cheer her on as she fights to defend her title as NCAA Individual Champion. In addition to McDowell, Noelle Hickey
, Christie Striplin
, and Irina Falconi
all earned spots in the tournament. Falconi has earned a National Top-16 Seed.
