LSC Roundup 5-1

ABILENE - Abilene Christian's nationally ranked men's and women's tennis teams will both be in action Tuesday morning at the Eager Tennis Pavilion for second-round NCAA Championship matches. Tournament admission is free, and all area tennis fans are invited to spend their lunch breaks at the ACU courts (11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.) where they can pick up a free can of Dr. Pepper and Wienerschnitzel hot dog.

The sixth-ranked and top-seeded ACU women's team (23-3) begins its dual vs. fourth-seed St. Edward's (14-9) at 9:45 a.m., and then the Wildcats' 16th-ranked men's squad (19-8) will take the court at 11:45 a.m. vs. No. 4 seed Northwest Missouri State (19-4). ACU defeated the Bearcats, 7-2, earlier this season during a Spring Break trip to Kansas City, Mo., while The women defeated the Hilltoppers on the Teague Center indoor courts, 7-0. St. Edward's earned the right to face the Wildcats a second time this spring after defeating fifth-seed Central Oklahoma, 5-1, Monday morning in a regional semifinal. The Hilltoppers won two of three doubles matches before capturing three straight singles matches at the 3, 4, and 5 positions.

 The winner of each Tuesday regional championship match advances to the NCAA Division II National Championship, which will take place May 16 - 19 in Louisville, Ky.

Fans also can watch for free via a live web stream found on the ACU Sports page at YoeTV. Grant Boone will provide the play-by-play commentary.
