SAINT LEO, Fla. – The seventh-ranked Saint Leo women's tennis team has punched a ticket to its third-straight, and fourth overall NCAA Tournament appearance, earning the No. 2 seed in the South Region, NCAA officials announced Tuesday evening.
The Lions earned hosting duties after securing the No. 2 seed in the South Region behind top-seeded and No. 1 ranked Barry. This year's South Region setup features six teams, with matches being played at the first two seeds in each region. Fifth-seeded Rollins will square off against fourth-seed West Florida at Barry, while the No. 3 seed and fifth-ranked Lynn takes on Stillman, who earned the sixth and final south region seed, at the Saint Leo Tennis Center on Monday.
The respective site's champions will each advance to the National Championship, which will take place May 14-17 at Sanlando Park in Altamonte Springs, Fla., and will be hosted by the Sunshine State Conference.
