Men’s and Women’s Tennis Set To Host MIAC Playoffs This Weekend

Posted on May 6th, 2011 by

Gustavus will serve as the host for both the MIAC Men’s and Women’s Playoff Championships this Friday and Saturday at the Brown Outdoor Tennis Complex. In 2007, the MIAC moved to a six-team playoff format to determine the league’s automatic qualifier for the NCAA Championships.  The Gustie men’s and women’s teams have served as the host for the league playoff since the change to the new format.  The Gustavus women claimed the 2010 Playoff Title, while Carleton defeated the Gustavus to claim the men’s Playoff Title.

The 2011 Playoff Tournament begins at noon on Friday, May 6 with two Quarterfinal men’s matches.  #5 Concordia will face #4 St. Olaf, while #3 St. Thomas will take on #6 Hamline.  The highest remaining seed will face #2 Carleton, while the lowest remaining seed will battle #1 seed Gustavus on Saturday morning at 9 am.  The semifinal winners will play at 2:30 pm on Saturday for the championship and the automatic bid to the NCAA Championship.

Live stats of each match will be available through the Gustavus Playoff website.

    I’m getting conflicting information. You have published the Concordia Wisconsin v St. Olaf but NCAA has Concordia Wisconsin v Gustavus. Let me know ASAP. Thanks
