Women’s Tennis Earns Regional Bid for 19th Consecutive Year
INDIANAPOLIS – The regional seeding was announced Tuesday evening by the NCAA and the Georgia College women's tennis team (15-11) earned a place in the Southeast Region. The Bobcats have now made the NCAA Regionals for the 19th consecutive year.
The Bobcats were named the No. 4-seed in the region and will face off against Augusta State University (16-8) at the No. 5-seed. The teams will compete at host site Savannah, Ga. as No. 1-seed Armstrong (24-1) takes on No. 8-seed Clayton State University (10-11).
"There definitely were some ups and downs on the girls team this year," said head coach Steve Barsby. "With all of their hard work and commitment to the program and the University, they accomplished something that did not look feasible when our journey began. I am extremely proud of this group of girls."
The Bobcats take the court against the Jaguars Sunday, April 28 at 10 a.m., the same time the Pirates face the Lakers. The winners will take the court Monday at 10 a.m. to decide the Regional winner.
