The Miami Univeristy tennis team, winners of its last five matches, hosts the Mid-American Championships this weekend at the Hebpurn Varsity Tennis Courts. The tournament starts 10 a.m. Friday, but Miami won’t begin play until 10 a.m. Saturday.
The RedHawks won their sixth straight MAC regular season title, giving them the No. 1 seed and a first round bye. The RedHawks will face the winner of No. 4 seed University at Buffalo and No. 5 seed University of Toledo. Miami lost to Buffalo 5-2 April 4, which marks the RedHawks most recent loss. Miami swept Toledo 7-0 April 12.
If the RedHawks win, they will play in the Championship match noon Sunday. The winner of that match gets a berth in the NCAA Tournament.
Several RedHawks took home MAC awards for their efforts in the regular season. Head Coach Anca Dumitrescu was named MAC Coach of the Year and senior Nimisha Mohan was named first-team all-MAC. Freshman Andreea Badileanu was named MAC Freshman of the Year and garnered second-team all-MAC.
