St. Peter, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s tennis team will travel to Northfield, Minn., to take on Carleton College in the 2014 Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) Women’s Tennis Playoff Championship on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Saturday’s championship will take place at Carleton’s Bell Field Courts.
The second-seeded Gusties defeated third-seeded St. Thomas on Thursday in St. Peter in the first MIAC Semifinal. Gustavus swept all three doubles matches on its way to a 5-1 win. Similarly, top-seeded and regular season champ Carleton notched a 5-2 win over fourth-seeded St. Catherine at Lifetime Fitness in Lakeville, Minn. The match was moved due to inclement weather, but had no effect on the Knights, who took two of the three doubles matches before capturing wins in three of the first four singles matches to finish to take the win.
