Tennis Notes (Submitted by LSC SID’s)
Abilene Christian
The sixth-ranked nationally and top ranked regional team ACU won their only match of the week against St. Edward’s the No. 6 team in the region. The Wildcats now have 20 or more wins for the 11th consecutive season. With only one more match against Cameron this week ACU will look to win their third consecutive team title and seventh consecutive double championship with the tandem of Jaclyn Walker and Julia Mongin. ACU has only lost one match to an NCAA DII team ranked higher than #7 coming at the hands of West Florida who was No. 10 at the time. The rest of the Wildcats loses have came from teams ranked higher, or from Division I with the exception of Auburn-Montgomery who is No. 1 in NAIA. On the men’s side ACU is coming off a disappointing 5-4 loss to St. Edward’s in their only match of the week. The Wildcats were swept in doubles giving the Hilltoppers the victory. The loss drops ACU to 13-11 over all heading into their final match before the LSC Championships with Cameron University the two teams on the men’s side to battle for the conference title. After winning a program record 26 matches last season ACU will fall short of the 20 win plateau for the first time since 2003, a season in which they won 19 games.

Cameron’s nationally-ranked #23 men’s team is currently 16-8 on the year, while the #33 women’s squad has a record of 14-7... Both teams have already locked up a bid to the NCAA Regional tournament in May... Last week the CU women went 3-2 in five matches. In a swing through South Texas, the women defeated St. Edward’s 6-3 and St. Mary’s 5-1, but fell to Incarnate Word 5-4. CU then bounced back with a 5-4 win over Dallas Baptist, before losing to Abilene Christian 9-0 the very next day... Cameron’s men went 2-3 in their five matches last week against the same opponents as their female counterparts. CU fell to St. Edward’s 5-2 and to Incarnate Word 5-0. CU rebounded with a 5-3 win over St. Mary’s and an 8-1 win over Dallas Baptist, before being swept by Abilene Christian at home, 9-0... Since this week’s women’s quad match at Northeastern State has been cancelled, the 2009-2010 regular season has come to an end for both Cameron Aggie tennis teams. The next action for both squads will be at the annual Lone Star Conference Championship tournament April 23-24 in Oklahoma City. Regardless of how CU performs in the LSC event, the Aggies will move on to the first round of the NCAA Regional Championship tournament (May 6-8).

Tarleton State
The TexAnns dropped a pair of LSC matches this week, falling 5-3 to Midwestern State and then 5-4 to Northeastern State. Tarleton ends conference match-play at 4-3. Tarleton heads into its season finale with St. Edward’s this Saturday at 12-7 overall. The TexAnns and Hilltoppers will play at 9 a.m. on Saturday at Potishman-Lard Tennis Courts in Stephenville.
