Men’s Tennis To Host NCAA Regional

Posted on May 8th, 2017 by


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The NCAA Division III Men’s Tennis Committee has selected the 43 teams that will compete in the 2017 NCAA Division III Men’s Tennis Championships. Gustavus Adolphus College will host a six-team regional Friday, May 12 through Sunday, May 14 at Swanson Tennis Center. 

The teams include Gustavus, the University of Chicago, Coe College, Grinnell College, Concordia University Wisconsin, and the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

The Gusties and Chicago have earned a first round bye, while Coe and Grinnell will play each other along with a matchup between Wisconsin-Whitewater and Concordia Wisconsin on Friday.

The teams will play a single-elimination tournament with the first-, second- and third-rounds played at regional sites, Thursday-Saturday, May 11-13, or Friday-Sunday, May 12-14. University of the South and the Chattanooga Sports Commission will host the team championship finals, which will be held May 22-27 at The Champions Tennis Club in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Student-athletes selected to the individual championships will be announced Wednesday, May 10.

The championship provides for a 43-team tournament. Automatic qualification (AQ) is granted to 35 conference champions, which form “Pool A.” Two teams are selected from true independents and schools from conferences that do not have an automatic bid for their champions (Pool B). The remaining six teams are selected from those teams in conferences with automatic bids that did not win their conference’s AQ and the remaining Pool B institutions (Pool C). The teams are geographically paired, whenever possible.
