No. 2 Seeded UNC Women’s Tennis Team Set For NCAA Team Tournament
CHAPEL HILL – The UNC women’s tennis team clinched the No. 2 seed for the NCAA Division I Team Tournament. It’s the highest in program history, matching the 2010 squad that advanced to the national semifinals.
Carolina has earned a home regional and a national seed 11 times in the last 12 seasons—the ninth under head coach Brian Kalbas.
Regional action is set for May 10 and 11, when the Heels will welcome Tennessee, VCU, and South Carolina State to the Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center.
The two first-round winners will meet Saturday, May 11. The victor will advance to the NCAA Finals in Urbana, Ill.
UNC has an all-time NCAA record of 26-14 and made it past the regionals on eight occasions, including last year’s run to the round of 16.
Carolina is making its 15th consecutive appearance in the national tournament and 10th-in-a-row under Kalbas.
