INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Georgia Tech women’s tennis squad will be heading to Columbia, S.C., for the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament and will face Princeton. The winner of the match will face either South Carolina or Winthrop in the second round.
First- and second-round competition takes place May 13-14 and features four teams playing in a single-elimination format. The winner of each site advances to the Case Tennis Center in Tulsa, Okla, where the 16 teams will compete for the national championship May 19-24. The event will be hosted by The University of Tulsa.
“We are happy to be going to the NCAA Regionals in Columbia at the University of South Carolina,” head coach Rodney Harmon said. “We play a very good Princeton team on Friday, May 13. Princeton is the Ivy League Champion and they have had a great season.”
